  1. What a great idea to share family photographs for historical and cultural and spiritual connection on a broad scale! My daughter has a dream to record a conversation together for Story Corps some day…hope that dream comes true. This is a great post for Photography Month, Jamie. I just wish Amy Goodman didn’t seem so rushed with the topic…although she’s always like that.
