At the age of 14 I would tell people of the places I had been, things I had seen, and my overall adventures. No one believed some of the stories I would tell, so I started taking photos. I'll stop telling stories with words now.
When you have never had an opportunity for something that everyone seems to covet, then no matter the situation or circumstances that surround you, you will take that opportunity.
Disasters bring us together, and no matter how many patriotic stickers we purchase, we still forget the unity that existed for the sake of others.
I was there, and if I could forget I would.
