If it comes from him...

James Nachtwey is one of my all time favorite photojournalist and he stands for everything that a journalist should. Him and TED will be breaking a huge story on Oct. 3. Anything he touches is gold and will, I'm sure, provoke some sort of deep emotion in all of us. James has been working on this for about 2 years now. Help spread the word for his story. You will not be let down.

This will become the link to the story on the 3rd.

Hi, I noticed your comment on the Big Picture article about Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and I came to visit your page.

We would like you to visit and consider joining the People Against Childhood Cancer community. We are a network of over 900 parents, friends, family, concerned citizens and childhood cancer organizations (CureSearch, Alex's Lemonade Stand and more) whose sole mission is to present a unified voice to raise awareness of childhood cancer. The website format is unique, you can have friends, post photos and videos, blog, participate in Forum discussions, start or join Groups that interest you, chat live with other members, and promote or learn about fundraisers. It's free, interactive and will continue to evolve.

While these features are nice, our focus is action to raise awareness of childhood cancer. One initiative is the Petition to Raise Awareness of Childhood Cancer . It has over 16,000 signatures and will be used to hopefully leverage a network TV special solely on childhood cancer or a similar high profile project. Other ideas and action items are presented daily in our ongoing effort to raise awareness.
It was the work of some wonderful, hard-working members from the group that got the article in The Big Picture (with the help of the writer, of course).

Please visit and join us at http://curechildhoodcancer.ning.com.

PS If you join or already part of the PAC2, please send me a hello (Jessica Greenfield). Thanks so much.

also, you have some great pictures here!
