This is my post for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate, dedicated to:
The children of tender and delicate years who lost their lives last Friday in Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, Connecticut and their schoolteachers and staff.
Your light will shine on…
“Oh! little lock of golden hue,
In gently waving ringlet curl’d,
By the dear head on which you grew,
I would not lose you for a world.”
-Lord Byron (1788-1824)
