Sometimes All It Takes Is Applesauce

I love Disney, and I was rather upset when my parents broke the news to me that we could not go to Disney World for fall break. The very next day, my school's campus minister announced in our morning assembly that an extra spot just opened up on his fall break mission trip team, and he needed someone to fill it. Since I was now free during this time, I decided to go, unaware of how it would change my life.

I had seen them in marine parks and aquariums and I had swum with sharks vicariously in nature documentaries. I had just never been a mere reach from them, in the same space, the same water in which they swim so freely. It was breathtaking. The first breaths were lost to the initial fear. All subsequent breaths were lost in awe.
