Vondrae

I can't stop thinking about this little boy Vondrae. I think about him when I walk the dog and go by the creek. I can't even look at the water. I think about him when I go by the memorial set up at the park. I think about him randomly, and my heart is so heavy. Editing photos all day is all I could do to keep myself distracted.

It's unfair. So unfair. Children dying is the one thing that shakes my faith. Drowning to me, is the most frightening way I can think besides burning, to die. And he was alone. It's awful. It's stirred up feelings about my own brother's death and I want to just run away from all the thinking about death. Especially this sort of senseless, preventable death.

I'm going to hold my boys close when they come back. And try to remember how suddenly it can all end.

...I fully believe in setting impossible goals, because they can stretch our capabilities and help us avoid complacency. Further, ambitious goals require us to make certain sacrifices, and this can lead to great rewards." Lawrence Chan, Social Media Marketing for Digital Photographers.
