I’m sitting on the park bench. I just can’t get the children and the tragedy out of my head. It’s been consuming me.
I notice a mother hand her little boy a ball. He holds it in his palm stilling it.
“Hey lady” I hear as the boy slowly walks towards me. “You want to see the world?”
“That’s pretty neat” I say.
“Mommy says I’m going to learn all about it when I go to school soon.”
I glance at the mom and both of us have tears in our eyes. “Yes you will” I say.
