When Ed Hanko took over as special agent in charge of the FBI’s Philadelphia office, he prominently displayed a photo of his father standing with about 60 other helmeted coal miners at a plant in Pennsylvania, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The weathered black-and-white photo on his bookshelf reminds Hanko of how hard is father worked without making it to high school. 

The Inquirer wrote that Hanko was 12 when he and his father toured the mine. When they re-emerged, his father told Hanko to stay in school and get a good job.

“Whenever I feel like I’m having a bad day,” Hanko, now 52, said, “I look at the picture of my father.”
