Playing in a basketball tournament this weekend. We were at our last game of the day and this caught my eye. A 16 year old boy was carrying these….were they his? A statement to be made? Maybe the statement was ‘these are my sister’s’ or maybe “in honor of someone special”?

I dedicate this to all the young children who have lost someone close to them – may they find a way to get through the pain.

I am an amateur photographer who has lived my entire life in the Midwestern United States – Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota and now Nebraska! I work full-time as a Marketing Director (analytical…not creative!) for Oriental Trading Company (a toys and novelty company) and find my camera a great place to ‘just hang’ when I’m not in the office or busy at home.

Enjoy – and feel free to leave a comment!!!

  • Thanks Jean – I’ve since been told that there was a team that was wearing these during the tournament. I’m guessing for a good cause…..
