  On June 26, 2014, three of Cora Campbell's family members were killed by a hit­-and-­run driver. They were her daughter, Briana Campbell, niece, Jame'sia Lang, and sister, Grace Collier. Cora took in her three grandchildren: Zy’aire, 4, Zy’asia, 4, and Damaris, 2. “Without them, me personally, I wouldn't know how to deal with the situation.”     A year later, after running around inside their home with bed sheets as capes, the children move to the porch where the heat and sun created a sudden moment of silence, each lost in their own childlike world.
