1947: Babe Ruth is dressed as Santa Claus with 3 year old Jimmy McCall on his knee and Jane Greenfield at his side during a Christmas Party for 65 young Poliomyelitis victims given by the Sister Elizabeth Kenny Foundation in the Hotel Astor in New York City.
I looked into the mirror one sunny day bored by my existence. Searching for a me in there that was not out here. Searching for a different world and an escape from my adult reality. Glass became a hazy fog for as I stared once more...a tiny child now stared back at me an adult I was no more. A huge hand came from within. Eagerly I jumped upon its palm and together we went back into the mirror. To this day the only thing reflected in the mirror is a child's tiny shoe. Ivet H. P. (c)
