Remembering September 11, 2001

It was a day I will always remember...a day I will never forget. Please take a moment to remember those who died in the attack, and those fallen heroes who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan protecting us and the innocent people living in those two countries.

Give Peace A Chance.

Zoo Animal's Human Nature

Over the summer, I had the chance to take some students to the Philadelphia Zoo. I had not been there in years, and I believe I was just as excited as the students. It was a hot, humid July and most of the animals, as well as humans, were feeling it. I was beginning to feel disappointed until I got to the lions...I came upon this white lioness, sunning herself on a rock. She wasn't doing much, that is until a very gentle, cool breeze began to blow. Suddenly, she lifted her head, closed her eyes, and began to feel the cool air dance around her. For a moment, I honestly thought she was human. It is exactly what any one of us would had done if we had been in her place. It was a beautiful scene and I managed to capture 4-5 photographs of her. Check out other photos on my website - - of animals and summer trips...Thanks.
