Lost and Found: A 9/11 Story of Hope



Walking through the debris at Ground Zero days after the 9/11 attacks, Elizabeth Stringer Keefe found a wedding photo.  Battered but still visible, it featured a smiling bride and groom flanked by joyful wedding party members.  Since then, Stringer Keefe has been on a mission to reunite the picture with it’s owner.  This year, on the anniversary of 9/11, she  posted the photo to Twitter and asked friends and followers to re-post the image in hopes that someone would recognize the photo.  Then the connection happened.  A co-worker of Fred Mahe saw the photo in one of 35,000 re-tweets and recognized him as one of the people surrounding the newlyweds.  The co-worker contacted Mahe who confirmed it was from his office located in one of the WTC Towers.  Mahe was not in the towers at the time of the attack.
