And all things that just happen and are.
“I came to America when I was 14. My mother told me that books were too heavy to bring, and I had this crazy idea that I’d never be able to replace them, so I copied all my favorite Russian poems by hand.”
“What’s the most frightened you’ve ever been?”
“Probably when my sister got diagnosed with leukemia.”
“Oh man, is she doing OK?”
“She’s fine. My brother gave her a bone marrow transplant. She recovered fully, quit her job, went to nursing school, and now works at the same hospital that treated her.”
