Old Glory

June 14th is Flag Day. When Americans are supposed to have a solemn reverence for the colors of our nation. In a day where some people resort to burning or stomping on Old Glory for the sake of protest, I think the story of the flag and what it means is more important than ever. […]

In doing so, they […]

I Got The Flu in a Hostel

One Thing Makes the Next Thing Happen

In October, I inquired about an opportunity in which I would be able to earn the required Volunteer/Service hours to graduate while gaining real-world work experience.
