Up and up and up. My surroundings were just a blur of green and brown. The last time I had flown was about five years ago, and it felt so good to fly. I had missed it so much. It was the only time I could actually be free. We broke through the canopy like we would if we were diving into a pool. We laughed at how good it felt….Until we heard the silence.
