The Standing Ovation

The Standing Ovation

Family and friends, shoulder to shoulder, in rows, aisles, against the wall; eyes fixated on the priest who acknowledged seeing such crowds in Easter and Christmas; a warm atmosphere expressed by shaking hands, soft embraces, gentle kisses. This was a testament of the love and admiration for the parting of the man being honored that morning: Gilber

Rockland Lake Pool AKA 9W: The rumblin’ in our tumblin’ satisfied--lots of ketchup on a big, juicy cheeseburger, golden crisp fries just like the picture on the cups’ carton, soda that made me say aah after my first gulp--I eagerly said to my grammar school chum, “Come on, Ana. Let’s jump back in.” Quickly, we run down the hot, concrete

Mother and Daughter

It's that time again: Camps & Travel! This summer, my daughter Mia wanted to try Envision's Broadcasting and Digital Media Camp at Fordham University before leaving to Connecticut for three weeks. At Fordham, she learned about film making, reporting, met new friends and enjoyed the sights of New York. The fun memories in the Bronx and Manhattan wil

At present, I'm working on two degrees: a Masters in Homeland Security with a certification in Terrorism and Security Studies, and a Bachelors in Theology. One would ask what these two majors have in common. I would say that understanding the latter helps explain the former. America has strayed from the basic principles in which this country was fo
Brotherly Love

Brotherly Love

Camaraderie, respect, and encouragement, were the commonalities at this year's disabled veteran wheelchair games in Philladelphia, "the city of Brotherly Love." Family and friends shook pom-poms, shouting out loud as veterans scored a home-run, lifted weights, or wheeled their way around challenging obstacle courses. Between competitions, veterans

47 Springs

Here I am cruising from Key West to Cozumel, sitting on my balcony overlooking the vast waters. The ocean appears limitless, the horizon ongoing, the sound of waves relaxing. It was just what I needed--a birthday getaway by myself--to clear my head and recharge my batteries for the next course of events, whatever they may be. Being comfortable in m

To Encourage

Every year I get a brain and cervical spine MRI with contrast, to see whether or not there has been a progression of MS. The last one showed active lesions in both areas which medically speaking is not a good thing. Frankly, I was surprised about the lesions on my spine, but I wasn’t worried about them. I trusted that God knew what He was doing,

MANY WOMEN ARE MOLESTED AND RAPED in America, some no doubt on their prom night, but this brilliant, compelling story stands out in a category of its own. Julia Torres joined the United States Army, bound for a war zone, in order to get killed rather than open the emotional wound she had sustained, but, in the chaos of battle and surrounded by her
Jigsaw Puzzles

Jigsaw Puzzles

Scattered pieces from Colombia, Cuba, Florida, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York, fell into place to form the puzzle. People whose lives had been touched by one person were linked together. Strangers became consolers, shoulders to cry on; providers, carrying nourishment for the downtrodden; story tellers, affording momentary distraction
