Half-Mast

Three days after the shooting on the Virginia Tech campus, Sandy and I passed through Blacksburg on I-81 en route to visit our son who is away at school in northeast Pennsylvania. The weather on last Thursday was indicative of the mood: overcast, chilly and heavy. Looking out the driver’s side window, I caught this in the viewfinder of my cell phone’s camera. The lone flag stands near the VT campus as a silent sentinel and is an ominous reminder of the horrific events that transpired there recently. Tragically, events that remind us all the world we live in is far different from the world viewed from the windshield of our Dad’s Oldsmobile.
