Photo of the Week: Power

IMG_9019Washington, D.C.

This past week, all eyes were on our nation’s capital as the transition of the presidency occurred ushering in a new era.  I usually steer clear of politics, opting to stick to things I enjoy, like travel and photography.  But as we all watch Donald get sworn in, I can’t help but wonder what he will make of this position.  There is a lot of uncertainty, hurt feelings, and divisiveness that came after a highly contentious presidential race, but what I do know is that we can not just sit back and expect Washington to solve the problems.  We can no longer be silent bystanders, because it’s our country too. We need to work together and try understand each other’s point of view without resorting to name calling to have our voices heard.  I am going to end with a quote from MLK- The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

Every week, I’ll share a photo with you from my adventures around the world and at home.  Most of my photos have little or no post processing.  If you would like to see more, please click the Follow button.
