Description: Minot, North Dakota was devastated by the flooding of the Souris River in the Spring of 2011. "Minot Rising" became the rallying cry for the city's recovery efforts. The Black Eyed Peas held a fund raising concert in Minot in September 2011 to help the cause. For a few hours, the devastation of the city's circumstance was forgotten. This photograph was taken during the concert, and I was pleasantly pleased to find the one still raised hand amid the celebratory motion of the crowd. Minot Rising, indeed.
