step into my shoes
People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child -- our own two eyes. All is a miracle.

Last thursday, I joined a group of photographers assist Sir Ryan take photos of patients who've gone through the ails of cancer. I just wanted to observe and didn't expect to be one of the people to take photos. As I walked into the conference room, I took a really really big step back. It was a sea of people, and wheelchairs. It was overwhelming as i've avoided crowds for these past few days. I am glad though, I've met new friends. Learned a lot about life. I have known of people with cancer, but as patients or cases, not as someone who is going through or have gone through difficulties. One thing I've noticed was that it was hard making them smile, they had this aura of something I can't quite explain. Perhaps I'd never be able to understand until I've walked  beside them or in their shoes.
