O Me of Little Faith

I had another post in mind today, but decided it can wait until Monday.

The photo above is of injured firefighters being treated after the Twin Towers collapse. It’s by Justin Lane, who was working as a photographer for the New York Times on 9/11. This photo won the Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography in 2002.

Incidentally, my family had the pleasure of spending a couple days with Justin and his wife (the writer Lauren Sandler), not long afterward. Lauren was writing a book about young Christians (Righteous: Dispatches from the Evangelical Youth Movement) and interviewed my brother and me for it.

Justin had his own project going: portraits of young Christians across the U.S. and a gallery of “Christian America” (Brooks and I are the “two men” in this photo.)

Anyway, today is a good day to browse through the Times’ powerful Pulitzer-winning photos from 9/11, several of which were Justin’s.

Where were you eight years ago today?
