Luckily […]

The Enemy by Ellae Lawton

The Enemy by Ellae Lawton

I saw the first Gulf War explode on CNN–- bombs bursting over Baghdad like giant fireflies gone mad.

The Warrior by Marcy Corprew

The Warrior by Marcy Corprew

Eighteen, freshly out of high school— some regard him as a “kid” you know, still wet behind the ears. He on the other hand, knows himself to be a man— a man with a mission. One fine morning, the sound of birds chirping, the aroma of bacon mingling in the air, and a plate with […]
