write stuff

'all' I see is them being reunited in public and being happy, I imagine them getting home, I hope they are happy young marrieds, with a happy home life and after that you probably you want my imagination to stop there before I type more

Then also the photo being one that a sells a patriotic duty, which I am more cynical about, is this posed, is it just a genuine moment in time that has been caught and then exploited to sell a message

I haven't clicked the link, so don't know, if this happens to be an indivual story or not, but me, either way, I look it at it think it bit posed and even it is any genuiness about it has is been sold for someone elses idea of a a greater good, a romantic image, yes maybe
but romantise the context, no

just cold hearted cynical me, posting of the cuff

I can do heart warming honest

I could and would celebtrate this couples happiness if that what is what it did caputure in that moment in time

when I say reunited I mean spending time together, because they don't get to be together all the time and this is a time they will have to make the most off smiley - erm

Wait, wait...

But all those are PERFECT thoughts to be having about this picture. smiley - somersault

That's what I mean. You don't have to BELIEVE in it.

But you could make a story out of it.

The story might turn out sad. Or happy.

Maybe he gets killed. Maybe somebody's exploiting them for propaganda. Then again, maybe something good comes out of it...who knows?

I was just trying to suggest, you know, that you could tell stories about the pictures.

And you did, you clever person. Wine or not. smiley - hugsmiley - winkeye

Sorry to interrupt, but I just had to report a tiny typo, and didn't think it worth opening a new conversation:

"we're got to work harder."

I guess you were caught between, "we've got to work harder" and "we're going to have to work harder" (you choose smiley - spacesmiley - smiley ) .
