Friends Indeed

Dunmore, PA

Though both from Philadelphia, these two urban special ed kids, posing together in the Chinese restaurant, come from two entirely different worlds and backgrounds. Thomas on the left has been a street toughie, involved in with street gangs. Kareema on the left is a devout Muslim, a true Islamic believer and would never involve herself with gangs. And yet, these two have become close best of friends under the roof of special education in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

I always said,- "Friends in need are firends indeed... " ! But the more I think about it the more I realize that this is not true... It is easy being friend when someone is completely screwed... Try to be a friend when someone wins $20M and then come to him and congratulate from the bottom of your heart, ahahahahaahahahhahaahaaaa !

Hi Michael,
I don't know how I missed this one until now. This is a beautiful portrait - their eyes keep drawing me in.

Well done, great photos. Sounds like a special program. I would love to see some follow images, perhaps in B&W. Regards..

love this photo. almost wish you would divide the gallery into two, because your portraits are gorgerous, but lost amongst all these other photos. thanks, denise
