onBeing is a video project I made while I worked at The Washington Post. It's based on the simple notion that we should all get to know one another a little better. You'll find video portraits that introduce you to the musings, passions and quirks of all sorts of people. Every week I interviewed and put a spotlight on one new person and the onBeing community grew. I hope you enjoy meeting these folks and thanks for stopping by! -- Jenn

onBeing: Talia

I contemplated for a long time who I might talk with to learn more about the American Flag and what it means to people. Someone who hates the flag? Someone who loves it? Too easy. "Why not start at the beginning," I thought. Or at least a beginning. How does a young American begin to learn about this object and idea that permeates our lives. Thanks Talia for your insights. note: Talia was five when I interviewed her. She is now six.
