Recently, Leana Jimenez of Rebel Photography took this picture along the Columbia River. The photo captures the Interstate Bridge that carries I-5 traffic across the Columbia River and joins Washington and Oregon. I particularly like the light reflected off the water and, it appears, the low hanging clouds. Of particular interest to me is the fact that my mom and dad met crossing this bridge during WWII and were married a few months later…just prior to my dad shipping out overseas.
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be
satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
