Saturday I had to photograph a kid’s funeral. I could have stood across the street with the TV shooters wearing shorts and talking about the Celtics. Instead, I combed my hair and went into a church with a giant white lens and took a picture of a dead kid.
and I’ll say it, I cried. You’d have to have a heart of stone not to.
There were a lot of comments on the paper’s site by people who say they’re offended by my picture. It was my editors’ decission to run it and I’m glad they did. People should be offended. You should be outraged. They held 14-year-old Nicholas Fomby-Davis down and shot him through the chest. Look at it.
