An unforgettable experience

I was living in a small, one-bedroom apartment in Van Nuys with my daughter in January, 1994. When the earthquake hit, the entire building started to bounce up and down violently like a giant basketball being dribbled by Kobe Bryant.

Artist

Rocks and boulders hold a particular interest to Laurie. She is fascinated by the variation of textures and colors, as well as the beautiful formation of shapes of the rocks themselves and the shapes created by light and shadow as boulders rest and lean against each other.

After a couple years of feature writing in the Santa Clarita Valley, I know one thing to be true: There's a story in everybody.

‘Ouah!’

They were three young kids playing in the countryside. The cornfields that day were their props for a hide and seek game. The children loved those fields, and at the same time, scared themselves.

Preparing for the next big one

First and foremost, waking up in the middle of the night to the shaking of my bed scared me to death. I was unaware of what was going on.

The big event

1. It was apparent to me that one of our local water companies was completely over its head when the earthquake struck. At our home, we did not have water for 8 days. I sure hope that they have their act together by now.

‘I would not be here today without you’

On some level, everyone knows things can happen to us that may adversely affect our lives forever, but no one truly believes it will happen to them. Accidents and illness come along with little or no warning and far too often take us by surprise, leaving us ill-prepared to deal with the outcome.

An overnight success

A short and skinny girl stands in front of a class of third graders. She reads before them as her teacher asked her to do. That ambitious 7-year-old girl had just learned to read and is already a prodigy, setting an example for other pupils. As a reward for being an excellent reader, Naomi's teacher gives her a choice between a color pencil and an oil crayon. She chooses the crayon, a yellow crayon.

A family reunited

When I turned five and entered the big, wide world of kindergarten in a small public school, I suddenly realized I was "different" than everyone else. My introduction to the new school in upstate New York where my parents had moved to from the San Fernando Valley was a loud "Oh look! A 'Chinee' girl!"

Are you prepared for emergencies?

No one ever wants to believe that a major emergency will happen to them or their loved ones. Emergencies can be terrifying to even think about, but the truth is, being prepared before an emergency strikes can be the difference between life and death. It also greatly impacts how quickly an entire community can recover.
