“I’m thirteen—and a half.” He looks at me suspiciously. “Weren’t you eleven last”
Regina Calcaterra, Etched in Sand: A True Story of Five Siblings Who Survived an Unspeakable Childhood on Long Island

“On the days that feel dark and endless, I make myself a simple promise: I’ll get out of bed in the morning. Then I’ll head up the hill to class. If I put one foot in front of the other, day by day, I’ll move closer to the light at the end of all this struggle.”
Regina Calcaterra, Etched in Sand: A True Story of Five Siblings Who Survived an Unspeakable Childhood on Long Island

“People look but don’t see, why? People hear but don’t listen, why? People touch, but don’t feel, why?”
