Quiet Resolve / by Ryan Chen

I came across a lot of babies and young children on the dock by outpatients and admissions. Some were patients others children of patients.

A cleft lip patient takes a sip of some cool water.

Despite the heat and humidity high, everyone including the children waited so patiently. It was a humbling sight.

Every face had a story to tell. I wished I could have heard them all, there simply weren't enough hours in the day. Their quiet resolve gave me more than I could ever give them.
