Do you have a photo of the best moment of your life?
Last week, Sports Illustrated writer Richard Deitsch asked this simple question of his Twitter followers and was met with an outpouring of intimate and moving photos.
Deitsch explained that he was inspired by a photo of sportscaster Steve Bennett celebrating with his family after his younger brother helped win the NCAA hockey championship following an extended stay in the hospital.Story continues after Tweet.

"I thought to myself how remarkable it was to have an image of what was clearly one of the best moments of Steven's life," Deitsch told CNN. "I wondered: How many others have a similar image? So I took to Twitter and asked. I could never have expected what came next."
How many of you have a photograph of the single best moment of your life? If so, what a gift. (HT: @sports_casters for thought).
