Peace sign??? Try gang sign
there\'s nothing inherently wrong with having a picture taken at a somber site (other than your grandmother\'s funeral) - they\'re nothing more than recording a memory of your trip... the problem is with what people are doing in the photos... show some respect, and if you have none, at least show some restraint...
Notice they are all teenagers!! go figure
There is nothingwrong with taking a selfie at a memorial site. It is the attitude you project that may be disrespectful. I would cut a person slack for smiling since it is almost a reflex to smile for the camera.
The Asian girl at Pearl Harbor is not holding up the peace sign - she's doing a 'V 'sign which means F off. The Peace sign faces the hand forward with the thumb away from the body. Check out any photo of Winston Churchill making the peace sign.
I can see maybe one pic now and then (On Facebook) but one woman I used to work with (and thought she was "all that" back then--apparenlty still does)--her facebook page is a tribute to her -- pictures of her -- she's over 60--time to grow up!
it\'s all about context... maybe like me, she\'s a solo traveler... my vacation pics usually don\'t have anyone in them, but sometimes i get someone to put me in the picture too...
LOL. That's not the peace sign. When the back of the hand faces you, it's "F*** you." SMH.
Hello Mina, it can be taken like that, it's not supposed to be. during the many wars between England and France, because the English archer caused so many casualties to the French, when the French took English archers prisoners they cut of their bow string fingers. When the English would confront the French they would give them the V sign as a sign of contempt to show they still had their bow string fingers. The girl in question is just a stupid young woman who should be given the V sign.
Frank, that might have been the case in historic times but today, that gesture she is making, whether intentional or not, definitely means F off.
isn\'t that the wannbe gangsta sign that today\'s youth are compelled to flash when aping some ridiculous rap \"song\"?
Perhaps the focus should be on Bill Gates and Warren Buffet ???????????

Is there a problem here!?!? I guess if some people see a problem, those people need to get a life.
