Symbols of Democracy

This picture of an American flag with an American soldier plaque and a Soldier for Life sticker depicts what democracy means to me.

Military can represent democracy because the control of armed forces is determined and based on the concept of a representative democracy. This image can also represent democracy by having the right to be able to defend freedom and the right to vote, choose, and other rights. Military can help defend democracy and keep countries in a state where they can have the right to choose.

Our Democracy

The Our Democracy Education Project is a partnership with the National Writing Project and PhotoWings. PhotoWings' mission is to help photography to be better understood, created, utilized, seen, and saved. The project is also supported by the National Geographic Society and Catchlight, and explores the question, “What does democracy look like?” through the creation of a multimedia record of the state of local, everyday democracy today.
