Fitsum and Miranda on the CBS Evening News

A while back, one of the people that I follow on Twitter, Sports Illustrated Richard Dietsch had been asking people for their best singular moment captured in a photograph. So I tweeted to him this photograph of Miranda and Fitsum kissing for the very fist time in Ethiopia:


It really was a magical moment and it is a moment in time that I’ll never forget.

The next thing that I know, I’m being contacted by Dietsch to ask me to email some folks at CBS News so that they can ask me if I could give them permission to use that photograph. Then this happened at the 1:58 mark on the CBS Evening News:

It was a very cool moment and now, before the age of four years, Fitsum can say he’s been on national television with his mom in an incredibly special moment.
