Historic icons: both a photographer and his work

Civil Rights photographer Charles Moore dies at 79, but his legacy live on.

Talk about the service of awareness ... there's hardly a better example for the power of photographs to bring to light conditions that demand action and attest to the perseverance of humanity right here in our own country. Not to mention the capacity for still photographs to pass into historic icons.

A moment of silence is appropriate, which should be shortly followed by a celebration for a life of service.
