A face without a name is intangible, as is a name without a face…
My freedom was taken away from me when my family was discovered by a man—a slave trader—with a personal vendetta. After watching my family tortured before my eyes, me and my baby sister were sold into slavery in Virginia where we learned first-hand everything our parents worked so hard to conceal us from.
But I didn’t want my baby sister to breathe the sins of this world, so I did what I thought was best. I took her life.
Knowing a loved one’s face is knowing their physical appearance, their flaws—everything you admire. Their name, equally significant, is the history you carry. What does that person mean to you? The time spent—were they the best years?
So what happens when you don’t remember?
