    I am a photographer for City Kidz. An Christian organization that works with inner city children to build into them and to help them in their everyday lives.

    This was from their annual picnic. I feel so blessed to be able to give something back.

    A car traveling at a high rate of speed, missed a stop sign, broke through a barricade and flew 200 meters in the air over an escarpment ( Our mountain here in Ontario ) . It then traveled 100 meters through trees before coming to rest just feet before railway tracks. The single male was extracted and taken to hospital in critical condition.

    You have some very stirring images here, Mitchell. Awesome work.

    City Kidz has a fantastic mission statement. I studied it here: http://citykidz.ca/home/ after reading your post. This can and undoubtedly will make a very positive impact on the lives of many impoverished children!
     
  3. Thanks John. Like I said I'm so blessed to be apart of that organization.

  5. These are fantastic, and thank you for your work with City Kidz, you are indeed blessed, as are they! :smile:

    Reminds me of the scripture from today's sermon:
    1 Peter 3:9 NIV "Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. "

    They pulled someone out of that car by the railroad tracks? That thing looks like it's been through the crusher. Amazing.
    Nice images.
     
  9. It is nice to see some photos from things I recognize, as I am from the Hamilton area and I know of City Kidz, great organization and it does work as your photos attest to the smiling children.
