    The reason we went the first time was to enjoy the scenery, experience the plush hotel and its’ surroundings along with touring the city and tasting the food.

    There was a time when I thought all law enforcements were good. There was a day when I thought they would help me when I was in trouble. There was a time…that I trusted them, but it all changed the day I went to San Diego to chat with my aunt. We were at the backyard sitting on the couch with my...

    It was a lonely June morning in our Royal Blue hotel room in Helsinki, Finland. The sound of strange words in an unknown language echoed in my head as I waited patiently for an elevator.
