This month’s photo contest theme is “Best Face of 2012”. Although, this little one is not smiling, I do think it brings another dimension to the picture. The intensity in his eyes does grab you! As I thought about the theme, I was overwhelmed with emotion as I thought about the past year. Many great things happened as well as not so many great things. One that stands out to me is the massacre that just happened in Connecticut. It was an intense time for many but I just can’t help but to think of the parents.
This picture reminds of the emotion behind that tragic time but also a sense of strength to get back up and push through.
