Educating Myself in Black History

My Reason to Write This: I don't know exactly when I realized how little I knew about Black History.  Not only Black history and slavery, as it pertains to the US specifically, but about both subjects in the "America's" in general.  The America's meaning, the US, Mexico, Central America, South America, and Canada. Yes, Canada … Continue reading Educating Myself in Black History

1MinFiction – The Long Flight

    From my favorite window seat, I could tell we were making our approach over the ocean.  The cabin was a flurry of activity getting ready to land - me, I was wondering what I had gotten into.  The end of this flight would tell me soon enough.  I could see lights as far … Continue reading 1MinFiction – The Long Flight

How could I leave my family unprotected to go help someone else I never met?  How could I … Continue reading 1minfiction – Storm Clouds

Idiots Driving in the Snow

This post is in response to Brian Lageose at  Bonnywood Manor, and his post on idiots driving in the snow.  Being from Ohio and after living in Northern Indiana for six years, I can concur with him 100% in his opinion of such people.  My concurrence comes from two stories that reflect his comments on … Continue reading Idiots Driving in the Snow
