On April 17, 2002, City Link Magazine, South Florida’s leading News, Arts & Entertainment Weekly, published the story, written by T.M. Shine, of this amazing photograph, taken in October, 2000 by local photographer Michael Joseph. It traces the photo’s creation, its rediscovery following the 9/11 attack less than a year later, it’s odyssey throughout the country as a traveling symbol of hope and a gift of love to the families of many of the victims, and even the national tour and effort to put the image on a U.S. postage stamp. It’s more than a fascinating read, it’s life-altering, and still pulls you apart after all these years.

About Michael Farver
Ex-print media publisher & art/design guru turned passionate social activist; semi-pro chef, writer, photographer, artist, trained handler of championship Dobermans and licensed firearms expert. I split up the hours of my day serving as a spokesperson and advocate for U.S. childhood hunger solutions, as a Dad, as a Husband, and when things get too intense, I travel the country following the latest reincarnation of the Black Crowes. I'm the Immediate Past President of the Board of Florida Impact, the state’s senior legislative public policy advocacy organization, serve on the board of directors of the South Florida Hunger Coalition and Women in Distress of Broward County, am a Trustee and Director of the Farver Foundation, direct a grassroots child hunger nonprofit in South Florida and also lead XS Media Ventures, a multi-media event, promotion, business incubator, new business startup and redevelopment consulting company. I'm into everything from modern art, tiki and pop surrealism to wine collecting to vintage guitars to all things touching, and touched by, technology. For starters.
