Looking out from the Inauguration platform...lots of flags, and armed soldiers, on Jan 20, 2021.
Maybe the next one, in 2024, won't have a pandemic any longer.
Speaking of which, I want to keep a couple of photos from the memorial lights for those 400,000 who have died from the pandemic.
There are just 400 pillars of light, each representing 1000 Americans we have lost in less than a year.
They stand taller than a person, but I'm not sure of the dimensions. Someone wanted them to become permanent installations. I don't know what they are made from either...maybe plastic panels on a frame?
I can't seem to find a photo that I saw (somewhere) that showed a man standing next to them., and he only came up to a bit over the middle of the light.
