I was a very shy kid, but my parents encouraged me to put myself out there and not be afraid to try new things. I'm glad they pushed me.
This was taken by my sister as we road together from Maine to California when she followed her own dream and moved to L.A. It reminds me of how proud I am of her and of our time together on the trip.
This lady was arrested for protesting the war. She was in her 90s. I met her with my Alternative Spring Break group in NYC during college, and she told us her story in the middle of a Greek restaurant. One of my fellow group members joked that I would be like her someday. I hope so : ) One of my all time favorite memories.
