|Kenny Lampkin at the South Side Community Center in Toledo, Ohio.|
I sat down at a table with my camera in sight. I met Kenny and Domanick. We talked about the breakfast, why I was there, and taking pictures. Kenny was really excited for me to take his picture and smiled every time I told him how good he looked.
I sat with them for a half hour and the time became less about a school assignment and getting pictures. I learned a lot about Kenny and his life. We had a lot of parrells. Pastor Jerry Howard was preaching to a table behind us. Every few minutes Kenny would say "did you hear that?", referring to something that the Pastor had said. I took a lot of pictures that day along with Kenny's address. He wanted some of the pictures I took and will have them within a week.
This experience was enlightening and life changing for me. I realize how close all of us are just a few bad events away from being in their position.
