Instead of my normal routine of coffee and news consumption yesterday, I hopped on a plane and am now on vacation until Wednesday, July 15th! I am so thankful to have a short break from work to relax and recharge, but I do I wish I had the chance to create an image for the removal of the Confederate flag. The past few weeks have been emotional and progressive for my hometown of Columbia and for my state. I feel I need to acknowledge my disappointment in not being able to create something for today - it isn't out of apathy, it is simply the timing of the event.

I am thankful, as always, for each of you who follows along and I look forward to getting back to creating Wordless News next week.
