|Eyes Wide Open - Girl with Flag
This little girl's father gave permission to take her picture. Please don't copy it.
Eyes Wide Open (http://www.afsc.org/eyes/) is currently on the Smithsonian Mall, displaying boots representing every US soldier killed in Iraq, and shoes for every civilian.

|WWII Monument Pool

This memorial stands in the Newseum/Freedom Park and is inscribed with the names of 1600+ journalists who've died reporting the news.
More to follow, perhaps.
