Purple Sunshine

“I’m just watching the sun set. Some people might think I’m crazy because it’s too late, but I like watching it go all the way down. I’ll stay out here till my lips turn purple. Purple is my favorite color.”
I saw 11-year-old Emma Brooks on the side walk near a school on the west side of Cincinnati this weekend. I pulled my car off the road quickly and walked over to her shivering in the sub-zero temperature and asked if it was alright for me to sneak a few photographs. That’s when she told me why she was out there. It’s amazing what comes out of young children’s mouths.
