Faith and Confidence

This image was taken during the Chinese Merchants Association Parade in Washington DC. Ayoung boy stepped into the street in front of a dancing dragon, and a tall policeman cautioned him… to step back for his safety. The young boy has the faceof pure innocence, with his head slightly turned to the side, curiously looking up at the policeman in wonder.

It is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. We all know that our time in this world is limited, and that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up. And yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. It is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, and thinking there is one more stair than there is. Your foot falls down, through the air, and there is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you try and readjust the way you thought of things.
