Proudly We Hail

“Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die.” – G.K. Chesterton

Questions for Tomorrow

There have been more than a few memes making its rounds that asks the reader if they could send a letter to their past selves, what would they say? There’s even a book of letters from published authors, actors, and musicians to their teenage selves. This idea is meant to inspire those who are struggling now […]

I’m (Not) Okay

Where I live, the typical greeting upon seeing someone you know is to ask about their general well-being? The question is almost automatic and is often answered with the same or similar question. Man From Accounting: “Hi, how’s it going?” Woman From HR: “Well, hello. How’ve you been?” Many other English speaking places around the […]

It’s been over two weeks since we last saw David. He was leaving for school and my wife and I were preparing to fly to Maryland for the weekend. He hugged and kissed my wife goodbye and gave me wave; too big to hug and kiss his ol’ dad. My wife playfully demanded that he […]

Look for the Helpers

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me,‘Look for the helpers.
