    This is the first photograph I'm seeing in the show, and it's about as powerful as they come. Ms. Cole has masterfully captured what we all are feeling.

    Slide 18. With this picture by Mr. Clary, I get a sense of the size of the monument. President Obama, as he reaches forward to touch the names, represents all of us in this picture, and I'm saying this as a Tea Partier.
