A photo is worth 1,000 Facebook shares

My Sunday story, on Spokane firefighter Mike Rose, is sweeping its way on Facebook. Wish I could claim my writing. But I think Spokesman-Review photo journalist and videographer Colin Mulvany's spectacular photo is the reason. He took this at the funeral of firefighter John Knighten July 8 but we didn't run it until Sunday because we wanted to respect Knighten's memorial service and keep the focus on him on July 9. So Colin and I worked together to discover the story behind the man who collapsed, Mike Rose, who is amazing. He's determined to return to work at the profession he loves. Dedication.
