Inscription.  "For Which It Stands was commissioned by the Mayor of Itasca, Illinois to be placed in front of the flag pole outside the City Hall. I had an idea for two children to be pledging the flag. When I photographed the children, Eric, who was three, didn't quite know what to do and had his hand on his stomach. Happy accident. I have learned, when working with children, to let them guide me in the pose and keep the parents away."
