In the dozen plus years since this picture was taken the boy has become a young man. My son. I can smile. There is an entire world yet to be discovered as he is readying to graduate in a year. His sense of himself is a thing to behold.
I wanted to get a picture of him onto the blog since May 9th the post featured his friend Yosh. Their friendship represents something deeper than shared interest. Both boys have had life thrown at them in ways most adults have not experienced. They are stronger for it and our family’s are proud of them both. These boys know what matters is choice and from within, peace.
