Ding-Dong Ditching, rolling down hills in huge smokey black colored tires, and toilet-papering my grandmas 3 story house, have in the past been energetic laugh-out-loud moments that I have to remember. So on this trip in particular, I learned what cardboard sledding was. My family had lived out in CA for many years, so they knew about all the ways you can have fun with hills. And cardboard sledding down long hills of dried grass, was one of them. In my little 9-year-old-mind, cardboard sledding would be so much fun.

In the voices of sorrow, people questioned, “What if.” “What if my son or daughter were still here?” I questioned myself: ‘What if that were me?’ With a heavy heart, I reflected my own life and empathized with the speakers and the families. Re-evaluating what really was important in life, I saw that the valuable bonds between family and friends - love, care, and support were priceless beyond any material wealth.
