“Hmm, it says here ‘Valley of Fire State park. It’s a national park.”
“What’s a national park?”
“Well, it says here that the Americans designated a few areas ‘to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and wildlife therein, and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.’”

Three days later, the police found the dried up body of the man in his car.

When she was young, she was “cute”. As she grew into a teenager, she became “bubbly”. Then she went through the usual puberty and came out as a young woman who saw nothing but flaws of her body – the wrinkles around her eyes, her crooked nose, the ugly freckles, the thick lips and other countless imperfections on her body.
As she grew older, these wrinkles, freckles, thick lips, crooked nose and other imperfections became her identity. They were what made her, her. The world saw her as she really was.
