Dear Author, It’s been a year since the earthquake. With San Francisco burning around us, we were sure we’d lost everything. With nothing left to lose, we turned to each other. The world didn’t end that day after all, and we’ve lived every day since rebuilding— together. We’re finally ready to tell our story. Photo Description: Two men in early 20th century clothing are standing outdoors together. One has his arm around the other’s shoulder and he’s tweaking his mustache.
