News of today’s Sandy Hook School massacre stunned the world; though I am removed from 90 percent of television broadcasts, I am sure that everyone is searching for answers that make sense of this tragedy. Through condolence posts, many people have found a token way to release some of their pain through the written word. Dennis Koenig created a public-domain photo-image flag and asked that we pass it round the world as a token image of mourning.
Here is his explanation of the image:
“We need a flag dedicated to mourning and memorializing murdered children.
Any children. Anywhere. Any time. By anyone. For any reason…
…In the flag image I created today for my use on such horrible occasions, derived from a photograph I made several years ago:
Yellow is for the ache of unquenchable longing
Red is for pain, suffering, bloodshed
Black is for death, mourning, sorrow
White rising sun is for compassion, hope, and help “

Thank you, Dennis.
