July 20 | always with crutches
The youth group took a trip to the beach one summer Wednesday evening to take advantage of the great weather and the low tide.

This particular summer Melissa was on crutches. I do not know the specific reason that she was on crutches; all I know is that she owned a pair of personal crutches because she needed them a lot.

Instead of going to the Homer Spit and driving out onto the beach like we usually did, we went to a church member's house. They had a steep trail leading down the bluff directly on to the beach.

Because Melissa was on crutches, she had to be carried. I would like to think that I carried her on my back, but now that I am writing this out, I think one of the boys gave her a piggy back ride; I carried her crutches.
