In Israel, at Kibbutz Shoval, I walked through rows of creamy white Jerusalem-stone boxes overhung with olive trees to his gravestone – Gershon Hoffman.

    When my parents told me that we were going to Beavers Bend State Park in Broken Bow, Oklahoma, last summer, I wasn't too excited about it. I was thinking, “What fun can you have in Oklahoma?... In Beavers Bend where there are only outdoor attractions?” Fishing, boating, and swimming in a lake...

    When I was seven, my life’s goal was to become the greatest cowboy the Wild West had ever seen. Eventually, I found out the west was no longer wild, and figured out that being a cowboy involved dealing with cows. Much like the Wild West and my cowboy dreams, my very real Cuban heritage was a...
