About this photo: “There is a children’s memorial garden near where I live. This park is connected to a beautiful lake. It has an abundance of flowers, trees, and a gazebo. The brick pathway is made up of small bricks that each one has a name of a child in my county that has died. Although it is a sad place for many…I find such serenity there. It is my favorite place to go and take pictures. I also sit, meditate, and pray. This park is my special place to go especially when I am in pain and suffering. It truly helps me to get through.
This photo was taken on a rainy day. It represents the many tears that I have shed in dealing with my illnesses.”
