Labor Day is considered the last day of summer. It is a time of new beginnings as students return to school and vacation time ends. Kids of Love, an organization of students held a Labor Day event at Sawgrass Lanes. Kids of Love members, their parents and people from the community came together to have some fun, bowl, enjoy some entertainment and socialize. Kids of Love was founded by a group of middle school students to help children and young people with cancer. It remains dedicated to helping young people in need.

Griffin Polk, the president of Kids of Love at Coral Springs High School said he like the idea of helping children who are in need. “This is a good organization and we are able to help families. We are able to help children with cancer,” he said.

Brian Peterson – the photo that started it all

Brian at BaCA

In our September 2014 interview with Brian Peterson, we mentioned seeing a photo online that piqued our interest. In case your memory needs refreshing, this is what we said:

… By now, we’ve got endless examples of how a photograph, a posting, a news clip caught our eye and led us to yet another incredible morning/afternoon/evening spent with just one of the thousands of fascinating people in this city.

In early June, we spotted one such photograph. Taken at BaCA (Bailey Contemporary Arts; you’ve been there, right? Right??), we were struck by the iconic nature of the image.  The photo’s description, posted on Facebook by someone named “Brian Peterson [on the right]”, read as follows: “I met this gentleman at a poetry event…after I did my set…He shook my hand and said thank you! thank you! for choosing your words wisely and being you and then he told me he started writing at 50 yrs old…It’s never too late, I thought I was late.”

We sent Brian a message, introducing ourselves and asking that he get in touch. He responded almost immediately, and the rest is history.

Indeed, Brian – and the rest of us! – it’s never, never, never too late.
