A Second Chance to Smile
My late sister Margie was born on July 4.
According to my mom, when Margie was born, my dad told his friends, "We have a firecracker—without a fuse."
One day, Margie took her little brother Jimmy into a photo booth. I remember the surprise of the flash going off in the first shot.
I remember getting a second chance to smile.
