What We Lose
I stand outside the arts building, a box in my hands, sadness doming around me as I am the last to vacate.
We had so many dreams we wanted to share with the talented students who won scholarships in the arts, all possessing so much potential, so much skill, so much beauty inside their souls.
What I am surprised about is how quickly we lost our funding, but Gill says that the funding for a school like ours can pay for one or more family golf trips to Florida.
