Me: Hey, what happened to your arm?
Him: I fell off my bicycle and broke it.

Me: And you're still riding?

Him: (shrugs) Sure!

I miss the invincibility that comes with youth, the stupidity to not notice the dangerous, the ease with which they get up, shake off the dust and keep riding.

With adulthood comes vulnerability and a fear of what life will do to us if we fail. Fear shackles too many adults.

I miss childhood.

If you've been to West Point, you know how the walls can close in on each other, how the rainy season brings in the 'poo-poo' water, how the noises of the day continue into the night, how small rooms can be stifling but windows remain closed against thieves. But you probably also know people and their dreams. How being born into a certain space doesn't set in stone your future, despite the noise and the crowding. You know that there is more between those walls that can close in on each other.

Fadi Madou waits to buy fish on the shores of Lake Chad in Baga Sola, Chad. Madou, originally from Marakou Island, fled her home 18 months ago after Boko Haram attacked a neighboring village.
In late 2014, Boko Haram attacks began to spread beyond the borders of Nigeria into the neighboring countries that surround Lake Chad. The ihabitants of the many small islands along the lake fled to the mainland as multinational forces battled the militants. Displaced families who survived the violence were left with little prospects due to the lack of farmable land and the many restrictions on the areas of the lake where they could fish leaving the population to depend on irregular food distributions from aid agencies and the charity of others.

It's hard to deny that climate change exists when you are standing on top of a sand dune overlooking land that was once covered by water 30 years ago.
Amadou Allay, 22, walks for two days to rejoin his herd outside Baga Sola, Chad. Villagers recall that decades ago a dyke was built to create farmland but as years passed, the soil dried and the water disappeared due to the rapidly advancing Sahara desert. Security concerns because of the ongoing Boko Haram crisis prevents the village from relocating to find more fertile land. Photo by Jane Hahn @janehahn
