Read this

 "Imagine everything you love of the world taken from you. Now imagine it being taken from your child."

Read the entire essay here.
Don't plan to do anything else for a couple minutes after.

Thanks. I'll be thinking about this story for a long time.

I hope this writer continues to write. A novel in that voice would be incredible.

Very powerful and heart-wrenchingly sad ...

I wonder how that story would read when told from a woman's perspective?

What would be the focus of her memories and which ones would she choose to share with her readers?

Thank you for always finding the most incredible articles. And sharing them.

You know something's good when you read one essay and immediately hit Amazon to find anything by that author - their memoir is preordered already!
