In 1981, I photographed the Sugar Creek, MO 4th of July parade for The Kansas City Star.

I returned to Sugar Creek in 2010 when we hosted 18 year-old Zaid from Iraq to provide him a small glimpse of the real America during his 10 day stay with us.

The first photo is from the original 1981 assignment and the others from the 2011 and 2013 parades.
