  •      During my last high school spring break, I took a trip to Spain and England to celebrate my high school graduation and eighteenth birthday. My parents, aunt, grandma, cousin, and I took a flight on Iberia Airlines to the airport in Madrid, Spain. We left LAX ( Los Angeles Airport) and...

  •             Our experiences in life determine who we are and who we become as a person. Recently, I had an experience that was very profound for me, in the form of a mission trip to Charleston, South Carolina with Group Week of Hope.             On July 11 some kids from my church’s youth group and...

  • Joshua Leatherwood   On my summer vacation in 2010, I went to Blue green resort in Orlando, Florida. It was quite the experience. It wasn’t too far away from Disney World or Sea World and it was near a lot of great stores and scenery. Orlando lit up a night, the cars were abundant, and it was...

  • The advantage of being in 'dorkastra' (also known as orchestra), were about slim to none. Sure, we gifted individuals had the opportunity to saw away on our noise makers while the neighboring class suffered through the quadratic formula- but I could never honestly say the class impacted my life or...

  • My family had been planning a vacation to the East Coast for over a year. On August 24th, 2010, seven of us left for a two-week road trip, crammed into a ten-passenger van. We spent most of the time in the states of New Hampshire and Maine. After seeing everything we wanted to in New Hampshire, we...

  • The heat of the sun was beating down on me so much that my mouth begged for water. Water that I had nonchalantly assumed I wouldn’t want to carry, and therefore left in the tour bus some 1,000 feet back. The sun near the equator is so much different than what I am used to back home in Jersey, and...

  • Amusement parks, fancy hotels, beautiful resorts - these are the places I like to visit. Everything is provided for me, and I can just go around doing what I want. So when my parents said that we should go camping in Yellowstone National Park, my immediate response was no, No, and NO. I did not...

  • A Noisy Silence              There I was sitting in the middle of a cloud forest on a mountain top in Honduras. Unlike the schools in the states, Insitituto El Rey had no walls or doors just a rusted tin roof to protect the students from the afternoon rains that were held up by rust bars. A small...

  • During the first two weeks of our visit to China we had a tour with a lot of people who came to see China as their vacation as well. Some of the people on it were nice and others were very obnoxious and didn’t care about the people around them. We started from the top of China and made our way...

  • The cold winter wind whipped flakes of snow and ice into my eyes, obscuring my vision and preventing me from seeing the trail ahead. Fortunately for me, the dog team pulling my sled knew just where to go, as we sped through the forest, whipping around the bends and bouncing over the snow-packed...
