Innocence. A word that correlates heavily with being a child. Something that you lose as you get older and go through experiences that opens your eyes to what the real world is like. Working with kids every other Sunday makes me wish I could go back to my elementary days when I didn't have a care...

Syncopated beats flow through your head and open the doorway to harmony, as you bump and shove through the mass of teenagers.

Present any normal person with a pug or chihuahua or golden retriever and your ears are suddenly filled with "ooo"'s and "ahhh"'s and rather annoying puppy talk. On the other hand, present someone with a pit bull. They seem to cringe and back away, as if you just threw a cockroach at them. To me,...

Silence. Something I deal with everyday. But this type of silence is one where the outer world is muted and I can only hear my thoughts. I am deaf.

Some days are clearer than others. Some days begin and end in such a hurry that they get lost among the pages of the thick hardback book of life. Others haunt your memory, forever occupying a section of your brain. One particular day I remember down to the last second. I couldn't forget it if I tried....

Don’t be afraid, she doesn’t bite unless you do not want gender equality. She is not the aunt that doesn’t shave or wear a bra, nor is she the band of protestors that don’t take showers, and carry posters declaring their hate of the male gender. She is feminism, and is only interested in prom...
