"I'm sorry." -- I had a million thoughts racing through my mind as I heard the news, but I couldn't speak. I didn't understand it. I couldn't believe it. I'm looking at the hospital ceiling with water in my eyes, unable to move. I'm in complete shock. The news hit me like a head on collision. Whoever said, "sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can … [Read more...]

I am not real. I am a man made creation. But still. I control you. I'm on your mind every single day. You think of me more than you think of your loved ones.

Dear Adults…

Remember when we were kids and we would laugh? I don’t think any of us thought life was going to move this fast. One moment we had the world at our front door and the next second we got children of our own. Throughout the years, we faced it all. We saw ups. We saw downs. We saw planes disappear and drones deploy. We saw Suzzie get married and Uncle Ben get … [Read more...]

He wouldn't even look at me. I knew I had lost the deal. There was no convincing the look of fear in his lifeless eyes. "It's too risky and I've never done this before" he said. "OK, no worries. Maybe next time. Good day." "Wait...that's it?" "Yup." I paid my bill and left.  I didn't tell this to him, but I'll tell it to you. He will never get … [Read more...]

It was a cold December evening on the dark side of town. I was on my way home. As I walked, I almost stepped on a homeless woman. She was stretched out on the curb. Hopeless, I thought. I felt sympathy; it was Christmas time and she was clearly alone with next to nothing. I had just spent the day hustling. No I wasn’t selling drugs; I was helping my uncle sell some … [Read more...]
