I came across this graffiti in a local arts district in January 2012. The graffiti stencil of a little boy laughing appeared overnight on several buildings. The graff artist also included a special message, “Everything will be OK.”
It meant a lot to me then and I felt so lucky at the time to have been one of the first locals to have spotted it. It was early in the morning and I had my camera with me. I shot these pictures and later blogged about it. That post was shared so many times when I was writing on Blogspot, which later became known as Blogger. I always thought the graffiti artist might reach out to me but I never heard from anyone.
