    I was struck by the light while trying to find a quiet place to regroup while dad was in ICU. Oddly, I feel the image reflects the emptiness you feel while others are moving around you, unaware. That day, the struggle almost overtook me. Almost. But dad and I lived to fight another day. I didn't realize people were outside until I viewed the image later. My dad eventually succumbed to the injuries.This image stands now as a sign of peace with the circumstances and that life will still go on.

    Story 2

    This image and caption really touched me. I can too relate to these waiting rooms as I have had to sit in them worried for my daughter during long surgeries or procedures not knowing if she would be ok or not. It is certainly a lonely experience, I think your image captured that well. I really like the people walking in the window though, I feel like it completes the photograph. Almost as a reminder that no matter what, life goes on. I hope your dad is ok and heals in time.
