  • It was July 4th weekend; after driving nearly two days, we arrived at Washington DC right before the annual fireworks show.

  • I had not imagined in my eight years of classical violin training that I would end up fiddling in a pub. I wasn’t used to Maryland’s long lines of traffic and crowded streets.

  • My level of excitement went over the limit when some of my classmates and I arrived at the Jamestown Settlement Park. Everything became surreal after the long two hour bus drive, and I did not have a clue as to what was awaiting ahead of our road. This was my first time traveling without my...

  •   The sun shone upon my 15-year-old baby face. I had just flown in to Colorado, anticipating a happy family reunion.
