The pro-life movement celebrates human life at both ends of the spectrum. We fight for the right to life of unborn children who are targeted by abortions and we fight just as passionately for the elderly and disabled who are targeted by assisted suicide and euthanasia.

That’s why this touching photo resonates so much — as it depicts the beauty of life at any age, be it a little baby shortly after birth or an elderly woman who has enjoyed over 100 years of life.

The Huffington Post has more on this image that has gone viral on social media as millions of people are touched by the beauty and the circle of life it represents.

The photo was shared by Sarah Hamm of Gilbert, Arizona. She had brought her two-week-old daughter Kaylee Rowland to meet her 101-year-old Grandma Rosa Camfield.



The photo inspired more than 120 readers to post their own multigenerational photos and new ones are being added every day, said Quinn. But the real shocker for him, he says, was that many of the photos claim an even bigger age gap than 101. “Our highest gap in age was 112 years, which is pretty amazing,” he said.

“People were really drawn to the image for reasons we didn’t foresee. They thought of all of the things this woman has seen and lived through in her lifetime and imagined how her experiences will shape the life of the baby just starting her own journey,” Quinn told The Huffington Post.

Hamm said even she was delighted that her photo triggered such a response. Grandma Rosa, she noted, was born on June 13, 1913 on Friday the 13th. She was the youngest of two children and had an older brother. Rosa has three children, five grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren and currently lives with her oldest daughter in Chandler, AZ.

“My grandma was born and raised in Michigan where she spent all her life until 2007 when she moved to Arizona. She went to school in a one-room school house,” Hamm told The Huffington Post. “Her dad was the first one in their town to own a vehicle. She went back to college when she was 43 and became a school teacher in Ludington, MI.”
