I knew pain..

I defeated pain.

“How much longer are you going to sleep?”

“Get up.”

“But Grandfather what am I supposed to learn when all you do is hurt me?”

“Stupid Boy! I told you already.”

“I do this to make you strong. To teach you pain, to conquer it and to fear nothing.”

“Now let us begin.”




I was impulsive...Brash!

I never looked before leaping

Never thought before speaking

“huff” “huff”

“huff” “huff”


“This should be enough for today”

“Damn, it’s hot.” “A day like this should be spent at the lake with the boys”

President Harry S Truman, announcing the news from the cruiser, USS Augusta, in the mid-Atlantic, said the device was more than 2,000 times more powerful than the largest bomb used to date.

A place to call our own.

And for a long time it was ours.

They say life only gives you what you can handle but even then you can never be prepared for the pain of tragedy.

“Don’t be sad grandpa, I know Grandma and Dad have gone away but I’m still here.”

“I’ll still play with you”

I thought it was you who needed saving.

But looking back I realise it was me who needed to be saved first

you gave an old man a reason to smile again

You saved me.

“Grandpa” “I’m Home”

“How much longer are you going to sleep?”

“Get up!”

“But Grandpa what am I supposed to learn when all you do is hurt me?”

“Don’t be silly. I’ve told you many times already.”

“I do this to make you strong”
