    Congratulations, on your National Day, Wind, and on your photographs.I esilapcely like the shot of the uprooted tree on the beach. It reminds me of myself. The nationalistic pride I see in so many European nations gives me a good, warm feeling. It would be wonderful if the same were to be felt in America today.
