My younger daughter - caught in a moment of being her full and beautiful self. She's so photogenic - get her anywhere near a camera and she turns into a real ham.
This photo was taken in September 2010 when she was home for her B.Day, before she left for her first tour of duty in Iraq. I look at this photo, taken before she really had seen the ugly side of the world and the brutality we humans are capable of inflicting on one another, and I just marvel at her innocence.
I know she was just being silly - but this moment, this girl, is gone forever, lost to the reality of adulthood and all its multitude of shades of gray.
I will miss her.
