It was the end of the night when he ap- proached us, barefoot. Hunger pushed Edward into taking the short walk from the Harvest Home, where he and his mom have been for eight months, following their departure from Kansas.

Both Horinger and I were left crushed, our insides torn. Anymore, it's not very often that a scene blows us away, but this one did.
