My name is Justin Shaw and I'm a photojournalism/folklore student at Western Kentucky University. My mother told me to choose a career that I would love doing.

A woman in reflection. Her mother passed away, her apartment was destroyed by fire, she feels deserted by her family, and she legally blind. She questions it all and has graduated from the “why me?” phase into the “what purpose am I serving?” phase. How can we minister and help people like this? #faith #religion #philosophy #life #silhouette #think #journalism
