The inspiration

This is the photo that started it all.  As a boy, I used to look at this picture, sitting next to a ticking mantel clock in my grandparents’ home, and wonder what life was like back then.  Now, 40 years later, we begin the journey of celebrating all American families by first sharing their story.  Do you have one of those family photos that takes you back in time?  Post it on our facebook page and let us know what it means to you.
