Parent and Child


In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"I can vividly remember the day of my parents' wedding, a memory that exists only in photo albums and stories for the vast majority. When I was in fourth grade, I had the unique privilege of being my mother's maid of honor. I walked down the seemingly endless aisle of St. Mary's Church and stood beside her as she entered the sacrament of marriage with my father. The roots of our small family were planted, and to this day they hold steadfast. My mother is the strongest and most selfless woman I know, and without her I would not be who I am today. My father is a hardworking man who is full of knowledge, and he has taught me to foster a passion for learning. I am very grateful for the support and encouragement they have provided me throughout my life."
