Swerving - BLIND!   Droplets congregating in midst of my view appearing only to accelerating at my expense of misery: challenging me to a game of “Triple Dare Waterworks”. Drip drop, drip drop. Two tears total eight drops. ...

  From the beginning of time, what has been the purpose of society? Progress. The mission has always been to become greater whether it is economically , socially or politically. As hundreds of years have passed, the nation has advanced creating far more handy inno...

  I supported against drinking and driving in several ways: posters, the media, vehicles’ windows, t-shirts, and shoes. Family and friends assisted me with posters: we stood on sidewalks, in parks, in neighborhoods and advocated against drinking and driving. Not only were post...

Last night -I believe- my mother and I were talking about my cousin's behavior. My cousin's a young teenager who used to play silly games with me: hide-and-go-seek and cars with barbie dolls (for me) and wrestling men (for him). He and I used to sit in my parent's closet and pretend...
