20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Forever Exposed

This image shows what it means to be free in a country that is created on the foundations of democracy. While America to some may provide all the luxuries of life and liberty, this does not mean the same for each person who lives there. Each day people must fight to have their rights protected, as well as remembering those who came before them and all the progress that was made. This is why we will forever be exposed, because at any point in time someone will have the ability to take away our freedom and change our lives in the process.
