Professor Elizabeth Keefe of Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts takes to social media every year in the hopes of finding the owner of a wedding photo discovered in the debris
shortly after the 9/11 attacks.
The photo came into her possession after a friend gave it to her, in hopes that she would eventually find the owner. In order to keep that dream alive, every year on September 11th, the professor posts the picture to her social media outlets, searching for someone who recognizes anyone in the photo, or perhaps the owners themselves.
So why is 2014 the year that this story took hold of a nation? Well, Reddit users latched on to the story, and the Professor herself has been investigating several leads after users claimed to recognize people in the photo. Currently, the search goes on, and the true identity of the owners of the photo may never be discovered.
Keefe maintains hope though, and she had the following to say regarding the story:
"It's a beautiful, joyful moment captured in time and it was such a contrast to what I saw at Ground Zero, which was still burning when I was there."
Let's hope this sudden huge burst in internet popularity will help finally reunite the lost photo with its owner. Check it out above, you never know, you might recognize a face!
