Hillary C. Hempstead's Profile
I remember that day very vividly. I was about 23 and my niece was around 8, I was visiting from Hawaii where I had lived since the age of 17. I had moved there 3 days after graduating high school with my sister. Well we would come to North Carolina and visit my sister, her husband and their daughter Morgan. It seemed like a normal day, eating breakfast, watching some cartoons and deciding what to do for the rest of the day. Morgan wanted to go explore the neighborhood, so I said I would go and keep watch over her. We got to the neighbors house and they had a trampoline. I let her get on and have fun jumping and playing. She turned to me and said, "Hillary please let your inner child out so that I can play with her!" That little sentence has stuck with me like velcro. I always smile everytime I think of that moment.
She made me remember that my imagination is a special…
