A Veteran’s “Million Mile Stare” (Story)

These images come from British war photographer Jerome Starkey while attached to a U.S. Army Medevac team. He captured this powerful moment of Specialist Jacob Moore from the 101st Airborne while in Afghanistan. This is the story that led to one photo titled the “Million Mile Stare”.

“Somebody said to me. 'You know, your kids really aren’t that important to people.'" 
 
Joanne Williams had been an educator of special needs kids for 14 years. She’d heard it before, though she never quite understood people’s compulsion to actually say it. Strong people don’t put others down — they lift them up. Joanne Williams ‘Miss Jo’ walked away from the man. Take the high road and find a way to continue helping the kids. Find a way.

Emberlyn was born with Type 4 Caudal Regression Syndrome, the most severe of its kind. Because her spine ends early (or what doctors say "at T-12"), she has no hipbones, no tailbone, and no pelvic bones. Emberlyn was born with legs, but they weren’t connected to anything at all.

Joanie told me, “I have never seen Emberlyn so happy. Words will never be able to express the gratitude I feel for the Chive community. Just when I thought I didn’t know how we were going to make it, you showed up. It sounds corny but it was the closest thing to magic I’ve ever witnessed.”
