We greatly appreciate Laura Schatzman [landscape designer and photographer] for permitting us to use her “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” photograph on this website.

“Hands Up, Don’t Shoot”

“This image was taken at the ‘National Moment of Silence Event’ in August. I couldn’t believe the moment I had preserved in this image. It gave me chills and has been on the back of my mind for months afterwards. After the grand jury decision, I couldn’t keep this to myself anymore. I couldn’t hide this image and my feelings anymore. St. Louis is a city of struggle and pain, but it is also a city of healing and hope. May this picture show our hope and the promise of a better tomorrow.” –   Laura A. Schatzman,   Aug. 14th, 2014
