If we are paying attention to our lives, we'll recognise those defining moments.

The people who think it's a fad have probably not been paying that much attention.
I was raised in a group home for 14 years, so I was a beneficiary of philanthropy. I didn't have a family. The nameless, faceless strangers were my family.
