Jacqueline Woodson Quote: “Sometimes it seems as though not a moment has moved, but then you look up and you’re already old or you already have a household of kids or you look down and see your feet are miles and miles away from the rest of you – and you realize you’ve grown up.”

Seems all I had from them was the memories of fire and smoke.”
