Weep no more, my Lady

There is pain and fear, and there is determination and hope.

(the image link is in a post below - didn't figure out how to make it upload until after resizing, renaming, and redoing

Lady Liberty is shedding blood and tears while still looming large over our nation, and the valiant rescuers are coming to help. The rescue crews working in NYC and at the Pentagon are examples of our best, and will be joined by the rest of us as the struggle expands and continues.

Flag background
Statue of Liberty Face - opacity 85
created tear drop - used Plastic Wrap filter, opacity 75
masked background of AP images of firemen and observers tower Twin Towers explosion - 90 opacity;transformed to stretch & mimic size and scale.
Sandstone texture on left half - left faces in fire natural to retain detail
Adjustment layers - hue/saturation and levels

Carolyn
