" The Comedian " (2017)
A life can happen in the blink of an eye. My father experienced many things is his life that I could not imagine coping with. As I was going through the pictures of his life, I found myself smiling and tearing up at the moments of laughter and innocence he once held, and then the moments after the war where he seems to no longer smile in pictures. He was different, even in the pictures from his wedding to my mom and at the many parties after. It wasn't until the birth of my brother and I do a see a light and happiness come back to him; something I would be exposed to all throughout my knowing him.
