What public figures do you admire? Have you ever read
an article or even a book about someone who inspired you? What was it
about them that struck that inner cord inside you and made you want to
be a better person?
For me this time it wasn't a book or an article. It was a photograph.
It wasn't a great leader, but a child.
search for American Heroes that I admired, I ran accross an image that
moved me, inspired me, filled me with a range of emotions from sadness
and remorse to respect, pride, and love.
My attempt to create a pumpkin pattern of this image failed. Yes, I did
attempt to capture the feeling and the message this picture evoked in
me, but, of course, I fell short.
Out of respect for Christian and his mother, this pattern is not
available. However, with her permission I carved it and displayed it as
a symbol of the definition of "American Hero" - see top
Oh, and for the picture itself. There were too many links with so many
touching comments to choose only one to link to, so I have
posted the picture here.
Or you can Google "Golczynski" to see and read
God bless you Heather and Christian.
