Photographer's Note

The wind has its say. Triumph over light and clarity.

All during the month of January, the American flag stood at half mast -- traditional symbol of honor for the dead. In this case, President Bush apparently ordered the flag to stand lowered for an entire month in honor of former President Ford, who died at the end of December. But the flag should stand at half mast every day, many believe. As long as young men and women in the armed forces are dying every day, why shouldn't we remain in a constant state of mourning? And there, beneath, the Stars and Stripes, you see the black POW-MIA flag. Prisoners of War and Missing in Action. The flag was created during the Vietnam War, and many still fly it in honor of those still unaccounted for from 40 years ago. Today, it flies with new meaning, new mourning.
