Promises were made. Expectations raised that vast opportunity laid openly available. Listen: A command set on every child – Dani listened and held each word that she was offered as if it carried utmost truth. But then, Miami disappeared, and hope; the future that had been prophesied was gone. The words of mystery and promise dropped to sudden silence – but not forgotten: Dani left when she was done with schooling, armed only with a tree to prove her worth, and determined to find the way back to Miami – convinced it was the means to understanding everything. Unflickering faith that it was necessary, to bring meaning to her life.
