The final four minutes
Renée finishes her presentation by showing photos from her series called “A Mother’s Journey," which tells the sad and evocative story of a mother's love and determination as she witnesses her young son die of cancer. As Renée says in her narration, "...dying is hard enough. Our society should make living through it easier." By the time Renée finished her slide show, there was not a dry eye in the house. It was not a fancy presentation and there was no dramatic or polished narration. The photos spoke louder than any words could. Renée's talk was the last of the session. During the break I found her on stage and just gave her a big hug. Although we had just met the day before, Renée was able to create such emotion with her simple delivery and powerful images that I had no words for her other than a warm embrace of appreciation and a gentle "thank you."
