  1. This is the exact day and year I was born, as you would expect my 20th birthday is coming up! I was sad to see that he was in the hospital in this photo but there’s so much warmth and love surrounding him. I stumbled upon his poloroids in a facebook video telling his story and it brought a few tears to my eyes. Lately I’ve just been realizing life is too short to stay angry and hold grudges, we should be defining our own success and not letting others do that for us. I’ve been thinking about my parents and wondering what I’ll do without them and my sister. It took a lot of rough teenage years to realize I want to live life to the fullest. I didn’t think I would even make it to 18 let alone almost 20 and now I’m not really sure what I’m doing because I haven’t quite caught up but I’m not ready to give up. Jaime’s photos made me feel even more and I appreciate that so much. Jaime’s life is still making an impact in some form or another and that’s amazing. Thank you so much for sharing.
