Look Closer is a regularly released chapbook that compiles writing projects of the students in our After-School Tutoring Program. David Muñoz’s piece is one of many that allows readers to glimpse at the immense creativity that students are still able to muster after their homework is done.
When I was little, my cousin took me to a Giants game. He caught a home run ball! Barry Bonds hit the home run. My cousin gave me the ball and it felt like I caught it! My cousin passed away last year. I felt like part of me died, too. He really cared for me. Now I visit his grave every Sunday!
