TRAGEDY UPDATE Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate

EVEN AS I POSTED this entry a horrific event was unfolding in this country. One, or more, gunmen killed 18 children and a number of adults in an elementary school in Connecticut. My heart is breaking…

***

Defining “delicate” came to me quickly- simply because of the project in which I am currently involved. I am photographing children at a local elementary school, many of whom are offspring of newly immigrated parents. As they navigate culture, economy, future, we are charged with embracing them- after all, it is a delicate balance.

  2. Thank you so much for thinking of those children…As always, when these events (oh-too-repeatedly) happen, I wonder how many more must occur before we take seriously the delicacy of life in America…

  3. All children are delicate as the unfurling flower in her hair and your pictures only serves as a reminder of our humanity! Thank you!
