LOVE ON DISPLAY
By Sarah Anderson
Growing up, I had one of those old blue rectangular Kodak cameras with the orange “point and shoot” button. It came everywhere with me—including a trip my family took to Disney World. While there, I captured an image I still have a copy of. As we exited the park, I watched as my parents—oblivious to our watching— took each other’s hands. At eleven years old, even I understood—I was witnessing magic. That was worth capturing. So, I snapped a picture. Two actually.
It may sound unremarkable. A small display of affection that caught a kid’s attention.But I think what I tried to memorialize represented more than a husband and wife stealing moments of warmth under their children’s watch. To me, it was a stabilizer. It was a security. It was a chance to exhale a sigh of relief. “There is something right in the world,” it told me. Love was on display . . .
