I love this picture. Respectfully. I see at first love and then I see. This is a very powerful image. It is an understatement to say that I am beginning to understand. The ideas and images I grew up with are being shattered to the reality of the struggles and strife that the Irish people have had throughout the course of history, in the U.K. and in America. This is a prelude for me on my journey to Irleand. Thank you.
