  • This past summer, I was given the life-changing opportunity of visiting the fascinating city of Tokyo, Japan.

Who would've known this summer's vacation was going to be last one together, together as in all of us as a family. Let's go back...

  • The sky was a light shade of gray. I was so nervous that I was nauseous and my hands were shaking. At seven o’clock all forty-four of us boarded the plane.

  •   Every summer, for as for back as I can remember, I have gone to the beach with my family for vacation. The beach, with its boardwalk and its waves, has become almost as much a home to me as my hose in Maryland. Every year, my family piles in the car and heads off to ocean city for a week. We...
