I went to see the Jazz concert at the Museum of Contemporary Art and I saw these two people on a bench. I walked passed them several times when I felt the need to go over and ask them their story. I simply walked over and said," Hi, would you tell me the story behind the braces?" She said she was in a car accident and was in a coma for six months and her ankle was effected. The doctors gave her a wheel chair but she refused to sit in it and so she can walk now. She told his story. He was in a motorcycle accident and was in a coma for 4 months and his knee has hyperextension. Then she told me, they met and got married and had a baby girl. She named the daughter, Faith. She said you have to have faith in yourself because no one is going to have it for you. They come to the Jazz concert events often and sit in the first row. I hope you can tell from this picture she is a beautiful soul and he kinda just goes with the flow. I asked to take their picture because I wanted t remember the power of them and their story. I offered to email them a copy, but she said they don't have email or fancy phones. They have each other.
