This was the skyline in Washington D.C. this past week.
I have never seen anything quite like it.
You can clearly see the grey clouds forming overhead.
And the contrast with the clear sky off in the back.
The trees along the train tracks provide almost an end of days feel–just a few standing.
There is a guy on the train on the right with his head bowed back against the train doors–is he feeling sick, tired or just down with the weather.
This picture was taken one day before the second Presidential Debate, only weeks before the election, months before we come up on the “fiscal cliff,” and perhaps only a few seasons before as they say, Iran gets “the bomb.”
Where is this train taking us, what are we going to do to solve the sizable problems ahead, and will these dark cloud lift or settle in on us?
Hope and pray that G-d gives us the good fortune to succeed in these trying times and that the sun shines bright again for all of us soon.
