John Bailey Owen imagines the extreme measures kids take to protect their sand castle:

“We worked through the night, sharpening the blades and loading the slings. We were so focussed that we barely spoke, although someone had had the good sense to bring a drum and bang it ominously. No way were we going to fail this time.
But guess who the first person on the beach the next morning was? It was one of those weird metal-detector guys.”

"My brother went to college in America, and it was very hard for my parents to send him there. My father worked two jobs. I’d always hear him talking to my mother about money troubles. So when I graduated from high school, I went straight to work, to help pay for my brother’s school. I never resented it, because I knew he was more intelligent than me, and he deserved it. But now he has a great job in Australia, and I wish that I’d gone to college. But you know what? That same brother married into a family with two sisters. He married the older sister. And at the wedding, I met the younger sister, we danced, and now we are married. Her name means ‘angel,’ and she is my angel. And I tell her every day that she’s better than being a millionaire. So my brother got his job. And I got my wife." (Dhana, Jordan)
