Katy Fetters is not one who takes the simple moments of life for granted.
The 18-year-old grew up with mild cerebral palsy, and her weak left side has slowed her down.
But it has allowed her to look deeper into the layers of life.
When it was time to submit poems for the Huntington Beach High School Bridges program's Social Justice Night, she wrote about conditions that dehumanize men, women and children of the world.
"The woman who wears the black cloth over her face to conceal her identity," she wrote. "The boy who holds a rifle in his hands with ammo over his bony shoulder. The girl who closes her eyes to hide the tears as her body is sold into slavery. The man who sits in the crowded refugee camp, as he watches his family starve to death."
