it lit up my world

I just remembered something from my childhood: My dad was in the Navy for about fourteen years, and before we moved to Italy my mother, brother, and I would always meet him at the train station in Jackson to pick him up when he came home from sea. And every time, he would have brought gifts for my brother and I. And every time, they were flashlights.

And we thought it was the greatest thing ever.
