I took the photograph in the evening. I was waiting for the light to get nice at the Pentagon Memorial and there weren’t that many people around. I saw this Polish family walking and asked if I could take a photograph of their little boy, Oskar Poltrorak, while he played. It was kind of interesting because the bench where he played is dedicated to a child (8-year-old Zoe Falkenberg) who died on Flight 77.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
