Here's one for Throwback Thursday. This is my grandfather George King, taken at the Associated Press building in New York City, probably summer of 1941. There is so much ahead of him as he posed for this photo, both bad, and good. Both George and my grandmother Mary had a profound influence on my life, and I will continue to carry their voices with me until I cannot carry my own. Sometimes I wonder what they would have made of my topsy-turvy life, but I hope that they still are proud of me, wherever they are.
Today would've been George's 98th birthday. Happy birthday, ol' kid.
