The sudden disappointment of a hope leaves a scar which the ultimate fulfillment of that hope never entirely removes.
Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world.
Neutrality is a negative word. It does not express what America ought to feel. We are not trying to keep out of trouble; we are trying to preserve the foundations on which peace may be rebuilt.
All of us grow up in particular realities - a home, family, a clan, a small town, a neighborhood. Depending upon how we're brought up, we are either deeply aware of the particular reading of reality into which we are born, or we are peripherally aware of it.
Sometimes negative news does come out, but it is often exaggerated and manipulated to spread scandal.

Mom and Dad were married 64 years. And if you wondered what their secret was, you could have asked the local florist - because every day Dad gave Mom a rose, which he put on her bedside table.
