Where's my flame?: Five-year-old Michael Russel cries at the end of the Olympic torch ceremony Tuesday in Terrace Bay, Ont. Michael was one of the few children in the crowd of 1,500 who didn't get a chance to share the flame as the torch passed through the town. Terrace Bay is 220 km east of Thunder Bay.
This newspaper article from 1988 talks about the Olympic Torch Ceremony in Terrace Bay and a child who did not get to "share the flame". The photograph inspired many people from different parts of Canada to write letters to the child.
