    Self-Reflection In the middle of 8th-grade year, my Uncle Michael had a seizure and was put on life support. Even though the whole family knew that he had Kidney Failure and Diabetes, we prayed for a miracle. The whole experience happened rather quickly. In my family, it is our belief that if it is God’s plan let it be, so if it was His plan for my uncle to still be here, he would be. All of this happened a week before Thanksgiving, the time of the year when I should be thankful for what I have, something important to me is taken away.

I couldn’t fall apart on the outside because I had taken it upon myself to become the “rock” that my family needed.

    bang the door in anger. I shut myself in, glad the roach tribe lives outside my apartment. But the nasty creatures can penetrate walls. The moment the lights go off, they are inside, all over the place, crawling over my face. I jump out of my bed and switch the table lamp on, only to be surprised by the same formation I saw at the porch, the same terrorizing advance of the mama and papa roaches. Instantly they disappear in cracks I didn’t realize existed in my apartment. I have become a roach…

    have been more excited to finally teach my daughter how to fish. It was an early Sunday morning , and I could remember the day like it was yesterday. The sun had just begun to rise, my daughter was still asleep, as I packed an ice chest full of snacks and water bottles, our chairs, and sweaters just in case it gets a bit chilly. Once everything was packed and ready to go, my daughter woke up full of joy and excitement, ready to learn how to catch “fishies”. I lathered her in sun block until…

Everything else is merely a dream or illusion.” Mackey remarks: “Americans love to shop, right? We love to shop. And Americans love to eat. We’re the fattest nation on earth. But,…
