I took this photo in Miami yesterday.
A fist attached to a parachute.
Sort of a strange image of strength, fighting, and resolve with making a safe landing.
Perhaps that's the intersection of defense and diplomacy.
Where we employ soft and hard power to achieve worthy goals and follow one's moral compass.
My grandfather used to joke that he would come with the big stick if anyone bothers us.
He, like my dad, was a very good man! ;-)
