For today’s Love That Shot theme, the Love That Shot ladies said “The theme today is Reflections. This can be a literal interpretation of a reflection in a mirror or liquid surface, or it can be more abstract…maybe a reflection on a past memory or event.” My photo is both; the reflection in the glasses is of the flags of the Patriot Riders at the funeral of Jacob Dennis. Jacob died in Afghanistan a year ago this weekend, and our entire school has grieved with the many members of his family who are a part of it. His mother, aunt, and cousin all work there, and several other cousins are students. He graduated in 2005. As I reflect on the life and sacrifice of Jacob, I am thankful that heroes like him willingly put themselves on the line so that we can continue to live in freedom here in America. God Bless you, Dennis family, and God bless the U.S.A.
