Don’t miss the ultimate foodie event, The Baltimore Sun's Secret Supper

Fourth of July in Santa Monica

Melissa Moreno hugs her boyfriend Russell Begay in front of the Arlington West Iraq War Memorial at Santa Monica Beach. They were visiting the cross of Melissa's cousin, Lance Corporal Javier Perales, Jr. who was killed on June 11, 2008. The memorial is put up next to the pier every Sunday, offering visitors a place for reflection.
