When in the course of human events…

“Doesn’t matter what the press says. Doesn’t matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn’t matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences.

Coffeeshop Talk: Uplifters

Coffeeshop Talk: Uplifters

A couple weekends ago, I went on a quilting retreat with my sister, mom, and three of our good friends. The thing is…I’m not a quilter. Don’t get me wrong. I consider myself a crafty person. I’ve even gone so far as to use a sewing machine when the occasion called for it. But I have

In the Crosshairs: Heroes Among Us

In the Crosshairs: Heroes Among Us

What does it mean to be a hero? The fantasy/sci-fi genres are typically based on the fact that there’s this hero, and he or she is going to save the day/universe/dimension. They will do this by accomplishing  a nearly impossible goal and hopefully defeat the bad guy. And they do all this to ensure that good triumphs

The Broken in Our Story – The Rest of the Story

The Broken in Our Story – The Rest of the Story

Growing up our family noon-time tradition was to flip on the radio over lunch and listen to radio legend Paul Harvey. Even now I can instantly recognize his distinctive voice. And while politics and news items didn’t hold much interest for my 12-year-old girl self, I loved a special program he did called “The Rest

Between the Lines: Bener

Between the Lines: Bener

“Oh, come on. You know the tuna with noodles is the worst.” Bener glanced at Savas and Kenan, who sat sorting through the gear for their latest assignment. In between counting ammunition, packing electronics and sorting protective gear, it seemed the two were squabbling about—which MRE is the least appetizing? Bener shook his head. At

Impossible or Improbable?

Impossible or Improbable?

You know, I’ve said many things are impossible over the years. Things I just knew would never happen. I said I would never become a nurse—I don’t like needles, and got kind of squeamish when volunteering at a blood drive at a local university. I also said I would never move out of state. I

Between the Lines: Stef

People say I’m crazy. And maybe they’re right. Personally, I don’t really care one way or the other. Why would I? I’m the spoiled youngest child in a large Italian family who will no doubt someday give me a wedding even bigger and fatter than the famed Greek one. But before I’m shackled with matrimonial

Write Now: Old-Fashioned Research

Research. It has a different meaning now than it did when I was in college ten years ago writing a 15-page paper for English. Okay, so I just did the math in my head and it was more like 12 years ago. Sigh. Point being, the days of going to the library, checking out the
