Award-Winning Portrait
Posted by: Dale Franks on Monday, February 12, 2007

When I saw this photo, I hardly knew what to think. I had to learn the story behind that photo, if possible.

I found the story.

I saw the picture two days ago after Radley Balko linked to it and I didn’t have words to describe it. What do you say to that? Balko said it was "one of the most striking pictures [he’s] ever seen". I was inclined to agree.

Didn’t know the background story was out there, but... wow.

When I saw the photo, I didn’t know what to think either. It’s a fascinating shot and I can see why it was selected, but I think the look on the bride’s face is a bit misleading now that I’ve read the whole story. What a lovely couple.

If I met that guy in a restaurant, knowing his story, I would buy him his dinner and order him dessert. Talk about sacrifice.

Excuse me if my humor is inappropriate, but he will always be able to say:

"You should see the other guy."

From the story, it said he has a deadpan wit, so I’d bet he does indeed say that or something like it tez.

Anyone else find it weird to be reading this sentence in a newspaper article though?
They would mess around at the garage, both in their greasy overalls and T-shirts.
Kids have been sent to prison for that in Georga.

Becky recalled that on Valentine’s Day in hospital in 2005, Ty was so wounded he could hardly speak. She and Renee taped a pen to the splint on his hand and he wrote as best he could on a dry erase board: “Ty and Renee”.

“Well, we think it said ‘Ty and Renee’,” Becky laughs. “Then doctors removed his ‘trake’ – the tracheostomy tube in his neck that had been feeding him when his lips were too burnt – and he said, ‘Renee, will you be my valentine?’ I cried.” His next words were: “Do you want to make out?” Months passed before they could, but at that moment she knew that he hadn’t really changed.
O_O

Can’t think of anything else to add about this.
