my hero

to the little girl in the pink sweatshirt and pigtails who rode the dragon swing all by herself:

i forgot i’d taken your picture, until i came across it on my phone the next morning. i laughed with such pure joy every time i looked at it, i thought my heart might explode.

thank you for sharing your journey from ignorance to wisdom with us, and for reminding me of the beauty of the human spirit in triumph. in ten short minutes, you traced the emotional arc of a true rite of passage, and of every great heartbreak.

you totally earned that high-five my friend Erika gave you on your way out.
