  • Did you know that you can stand on the north coast of France and look across the water and see England? Literally. You can.

    I got the opportunity to go visit France for two weeks, and we went to the far north coast--where I took this picture. It was really cold, but really, breathtakingly beautiful. Definitely a moment that I will never forget.

    My life hasn't always been like this. When I look at this picture and others that I have taken of beautiful, foreign scenery or simple, goofy moments with friends, I remember how blessed I truly am. Then I think about how so many people don't have lives like this. Then I think that I have to change the world. At the very least, I have to try.
