Re: Photographs taken at Boots for the 23 Event
My hope behind taking those photographs is that it will make a true impact on people will look at them. Its not necessarily that I want to put more focus on the kids left behind versus the soldier but I want people to see the truth. That picture specifically is the oldest child and the youngest out of four who lost their father. One will have memories and guilt and confusion for the rest of her days and the other one will never have an opportunity to feel his touch or hear his voice. I personally as a widow and a suicide survivor, need for people to understand that even the greatest person, the strongest man, the most devoted father can feel so low and weak in any given moment and take their life as a last resort in an effort to make the people around them better off....We are so far from better off.
