Day 7-11 30 day Challenge

 This is day 7-11.  Day 11 is from a photo I took in NY , October 2001.  I got to go with a disaster team to NY and work, and we were folding flags for the families. President Bush handed them out. It was a very solemn and sacred time in that huge building folding flags without any sounds other than airplanes going over. The only talking was when some one needed to know how to fold. I was very humbled and honored to have folded one.  I just decided I would just do a pen sketch of this scene in honor of those lost 13 years ago.
The Freedom Balloon was also done with 9-11 in mind. It was from our trip to the Balloon Festival in Albuquerque, NM.  The White fence was in Dallas. Don't remember where the flowers and boat was!
