Lori, thanks so much for this photo of the Conovers. I know I'm very late in seeing this and asking, but... Did you have any interaction with Julie and Scott when you took it? Whatever their political views may be, their photographic tribute to their lost son is a moving display of real love (also visible in their faces). Seems like it could have been an opportunity to make an empathic connection across the political divide. Ultimately, I think, it is such connections that can begin to unbind the love and heartbreak from the political straight-jacket of national arrogance and violence, and return those tender and humane feelings to their more full and faithful expression in compassionate peace-making.
