The emotions of a picture

The Emotion of a Picture   On a cold and rainy afternoon, October 6th, my son was injured in a football game.  I couldn't do anything while he laid out on the cold, wet field.  I couldn't run out there, I was a parent, and needed to let the refs, coaches, and eventually the EMT do what they needed to.

  It seemed like a lifetime, while in actuality in was only 15-20 minutes; moments in time with me thinking, "move Sean, come on, MOVE!"  So I did the only thing I could do, I prayed and took pictures.  After we got home from the ER, and for several days, I couldn't look at the pictures I had taken, not even the one with him stumbling off the field under his own power.

  It took me 4 days to be able to download this, and when I did, I cried.  Tears of worry; tears of relief; tears of joy, but still tears.  Pictures of all types can carry emotions.  There are happy pictures (weddings, new babies, birthday parties), there are sad pictures (good byes, endings, etc.).  Pictures give depth and validation to your memories.  I'm glad to be able to capture my Memories...
