Photos help us remember who we were, which helps us know who we are now.
“Photos help us remember who we were, which helps us know who we are now.” —Susan Meiselas
My Gigi, an immigrant from Poland, raised her son as a single mother during the Great Depression. She had such strength and dedication. This photo shows a special moment between her and my Grandpa in the mid-1930s in Chicago. She was intently reading to him.
You can see how much she truly loved her only child. You can see the care she put into raising him, despite many obstacles.
My Mom always made sure to keep plenty of books around the house for me and my siblings. She also read to us daily.
This photo reveals who influenced my Mom and also symbolizes why reading together with children is so important. It made my Grandpa grow up to be a storyteller.
I grew up to be one, too. ~shared by @snorkytheduck
