When I was just a few years older than you, I was working at Brunswick naval hospital, and I met a boy who had the most beautiful blue eyes I have ever seen. He was leaving for Pusan in the morning, but we had an entire glorious day on the beach, and at the end of that day, he leaned in close to me and whispered, “will you wait for me?” I froze. I knew if I leaned just 2 inches closer, the world as I knew it would be changed forever.
