The Memorial that Moves Forward

Originally published in September of 2016 It's a fine line, knowing when to move on.

The Feel-good Comeback

I have been waiting a long time for something that happened today. In the back of my mind, biding my time for the comeback of someone who fell from grace, so to speak.
