Leather button

"My earliest memory is of my father taking me to start school. He walked me to school for the first two weeks and then I walked with other children. When he was walking me to school he lost a leather button from his camel coat, I remember searching for it for weeks and weeks after, I never found that button."

This leather button is a symbol of freedom for me. I had the same ones on a duffelcoat my mother bought me when I was allowed for the first time to walk to school on my own.
