  • As I stepped off the train and into the Back Bay Train Station in Boston, Massachusetts, my memory flashed back to when I was younger.  I took in my surroundings with awe and excitement.  It had been five and a half years since my family and I moved from Boston and this was our first time back.  We...

  •   I have traveled internationally quite often over my life, but one of the most educational and emotional trips I’ve taken was to Germany a couple years ago. I went with a group from my church.
