Gave another kid a homemade sketch pad yesterday. He's always getting in trouble and I hardly ever see him smile. I asked him what he liked to draw and he said cars, so I made him a pad with examples of cars, motorcycles, space shuttles, starships, superheroes, and ninjas, because what 9 year old boy doesn't like those? His little face lit up. He's got a beautiful smile, exactly as a kid should. That's another two seconds out of hell for me, but reprieve in the afterlife isn't motivation.
I'm here for the here and now.
