None of us materialized out of thin air. We were all born from someone’s womb. For those of us who are truly blessed — which is most of us, those wombs belonged to mothers who love us with all of their might. For those of us who are doubly blessed, we are also the offspring of fathers who also have the highest hopes for us. All of this faith put into us from before we’re even born.

What do we do with it? All of that love and adoration. Even if we don’t turn out exactly how our parents wanted us to, which of us at least comes close to honoring our parents hopes in some way by making sure that we do decent and honorable things with our lives?

    • Thank you so much, Pat. I just hope it can spur ideas, that I don’t yet have, to real solutions to real problems. Even inspire someone to either change their life or celebrate the wonderful life they’re fortunate to have.

    • This time, I wanted to produce a photo essay that relies little on the written word. I wanted a series of pictures that did most, if not all, of the job of telling the story of what’s going on. Who are the players involved? Why is this happening?

      I wanted the text to only convey a secondary story or meaning. Perhaps a moral. I still like stories with morals, even though there have been some I don’t agree with. I think that I especially like them because it’s becoming increasingly hard to tell such stories today, and keep people’s attention.
