This is an AWESOME picture!! I was actually thinking (wasn't planning on making though) of doing a photo with quite a similar theme to it, but in any case, you still beat me to it. Keep up the good work!!

I know this now. Every man gives his life for what he believes. Every woman gives her life for what she believes. Sometimes people believe in little or nothing yet they give their lives to that little or nothing. One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. And then it is gone. But to sacrifice what you are and live without belief, that's more terrible than dying. Joan of Arc
