  • finding your thoughts in the onslaught of informationIn the middle of the night, there are thoughts. Thoughts that are completely my own. They wake me up and keep me awake.

  • Remembering 9/11 and its legacy
    on Sep 11, 2011
    I am surprised. I have read numerous articles in the past week assessing the impact of 9/11 and how it has changed our nation. For the most part, these articles have been cynical and pessimistic concerning how things are 10 years later. Frank Rich wr...
  • I am vulnerable, therefore I am... vulnerable.I used to begin my 9th grade Honors English class with the teaching of an unlikely (yet fitting) pair of short stories -- "A & P" by John Updike and "The Guest" by Albert Camus. Though decidedly different in setting and style, the two stories sha...
