This bald eagle basically begged me to take his photo by perching atop this American flag and a brass bald eagle in Naples, Florida. Happy to share the good news that Bald Eagles are thriving in Southwest Florida and Alaska, too, by my observation.
My heart goes out to the families who were innocent victims of unspeakable cruelty on Bastille Day in Nice, France. We must pray for peace and for God to heal this violent society we live in.
As I lie awake last night, not sleeping, I thought back on time my daughter Courtney and I were on Boulevard des Anglais in Nice 10 years ago when families were crowding the same space in a similar way. It was the finals of the World Cup between France and Italy. Here are a few photos I took that evening.
This image of the man resting by his flag on the beach in Nice still resonates with me.
