  • At 2 o’clock our plane landed at Toncontin International Airport in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. As I peered through a small window on the right side of the plane, I could see the city rising up all around me.

Chickens and crowds are everywhere, and even ‘tap-tap’ busses have people clinging to the roofs. It’s a four hour drive from the capital of Port-au-Prince to Les...

  • In the summer of 2010, the Andrews family embarked upon a journey meant to be a relaxing vacation at Mustang Island. The hotel was booked, our bags packed, and the car ready for the four hour drive upon the Texas roads. This would normally be the point in which I relay the pristine waters, the...

  • My aunt recently moved to California and paid for my ticket to fly me from Michigan to visit with her. On my flight there, all I could imagine was how beautiful the beaches were, how beautiful the people were and how everything was going to look just like The Hills on MTV. I was sadly mistaken. I...

  •      I have spent the past twelve years of my life climbing the educational ladder in this country. Easier class to harder class. Lower grade to higher grade. Middle school to high school. I have learned much these past twelve years, and of course I am grateful for that, but never have I learned...
