  • To Nashville (The Long Way)   From December 30th, 2007, to January 7th, 2008, I went on a road trip with two of my close friends, Syd and Dan. They came from Dallastown, Pennsylvania to pick me up in Pasadena, Maryland. We proceeded to drive out west to Elmwood, Illinois, and then down south to...

  • I've been on numerous trips in my life; some were extraordinary and others were monotonous to say the least. But no trip has ever been as fascinating as the one I've been through in my own mind.

  • I wish you were my sister,” said Emily. I have been a counselor at W. Alton Jones Campus for three years, but never has a child left such an impact on me before.

While I’ve enjoyed every trip I’ve taken as the daughter of a pair of...

  • Most people probably do not think about or even remember the crime scene in New York's Greenwich Village on March 14, 2007, but I do. It changed my life completely. It made me think more about my actions. It made me respond differently to my surroundings. It made me miss home more than ever before...

  • During my junior year at St. Edmund Preparatory H.S., I went on the Emmaus XX Retreat with a group of girls from school. As per school tradition, the events that take place on each retreat are kept secret. Everyone goes into the experience not knowing what to expect. I was hesitant to attend, but...

  • Last year, I went to India for my cousin's wedding. However, within a week of arrival, my grandfather suffered a massive stroke and was placed in a city hospital. When we went to visit him, I remember reading a sign written large golden letters across the wall that said 'health is the greatest...
