Hunter Heath is a senior at Bleckley County High School. Despite being a special needs student, he has many friends and has taken lots of pictures. In those pictures, he'll often throw up two fingers. Many think it's a peace symbol.
But mother Margaret Spielman says it's actually Hunter's sign for hamburgers. That's because Hunter has heard people yell "cheese" when taking pictures, and he associates cheese with hamburgers. Spielman is hoping to get lots of photos with people doing the same two-finger sign.
She created a page called "Hamburgers For Hunter." March 22 is his birthday. Spielman is wanting people, businesses, everyone possible to post pictures of themselves on the page doing the two-finger sign with the tag "Hamburgers For Hunter."
Spielman said she will go through with the pictures with Hunter. She also plans to make the photos into a book for him to have when he moves to Macon in May. Spielman says the photo book will be a way for Hunter to have a special memory of his birthday as well as "so he can know how much he's loved not just by his family but by others in the community as well.
