The Verdict Everybody’s Talking About

The George Zimmerman case has sparked up a ton of emotions recently. I think what pains me most about the story of Trayvon Martin is that something very similar happened to me, but by the grace of God, it didn’t end the same way. So when I see his face on the internet or TV, I think to myself, “That could have been me.” My Story In the summer of 2005, I had just graduated from high school and was enjoying my summer vacation before college started. It was July, and the only time of the day it was cool...

My Theory of Everything Part 1 – Dream Metaphor

« Introduction Have you ever had a dream? If you’re a human being, I’m guessing you have.

A Story Filled with Juice, Bleach, Belts, and Nigerians

When I was eight years old, I woke up early one saturday morning, like I always did to watch cartoons. It was 6 am and I took a cup of red fruit punch down to the family room and happily drank it as I watched Mega Man. I was not allowed to drink fruit juice in the family room, but my parents were asleep, and I thought I could get away with it, so I decided to drink it anyways. Saturday morning cartoons were always a treat, and I could get a bit excited at times. One of those...
