About

The year after graduating high school, Owen Essen received a very special letter in the mail. It was unexpected, though it was written by someone he knew quite well.

He had written the letter roughly a year earlier, while on a retreat with his high school classmates. In reading the letter, he was reminded of the hopes, fears and ambitions that had occupied his mind 12 months prior.
