Lovely Lady keeps me abreast of the kind of news she knows will jerk my heartstrings and the kind of pictures that make me eat my heart out... this shot of Paige Bennethum, taken by her mother Abby, is one of those shots. The kind any news shooter will spend half a lifetime wanting to get and never does.
The closest I came, and was liberally complimented on the shots, was doing a piece on Hmong homecomings- following them thru the day as the group made their way through their first day on American soil. "This is how people are supposed to be shot!" the news director said of the shots. Made my day, and I know this shot is making Abby Bennethum's day, as well.
But not as much as it will make her day when her husband and Paige's father returns from combat.
I pray for these men, the heroes who walk among us.
It probably won't happen, but Paige and her mother should be on every newscast, every talk show, every newspaper and blog site in America. Prayers for these men and their families should be on every lip each morning and evening as well. "Pray without ceasing." We are admonished by our God, yet fall so short of it. Forgive me that sin, Oh God!
