“every child needs to be remembered, they had no choices ” - Anonymous

“8 years old. I think of what you could've become and my my heart cries along with my eyes. Such a beauty. Your face spoke to me, those glorious eyes spoke to me. I am a college student and have save your picture on my phone. Your face along with the other children has motivated me to be something more that I am in honor of your inability to do so. I hope that I make you all proud. ” - Kayla
