Amidst the heartbreaking tragedy of 9/11, a stranger finds a photograph discarded on the ground. In it, six friends pose together, smiling against a backdrop of snow-covered mountains. For the next 13 years, Elizabeth Stringer Keefe will try to unravel the mystery of this haunting image.
Stringer Keefe is a professor at Lesley University in Boston, Massachusetts, and she also serves as the Co-President of the Massachusetts Council for Exceptional Children. And as if that wasn’t enough to keep her busy, she’s studying for a Ph.D. at Boston College as well.
However, despite her busy academic schedule, Stringer Keefe has found time to keep up one tradition over the past 13 years. It all began in September 2001, just days after a terrorist attack in New York City claimed the lives of some 3,000 people.
