  • Personal Narrative-Targeted Killing

    For two months, as I followed every conceivable lead, Caulder grew nastier, fuming constantly about my incompetence. “What the fuck have you been doing with your time?” he bellowed. “Do you have any idea the flack the department will take, that I will take, if it comes out we killed a guitar player while trying to dispatch an ambassador’s daughter?

I plan to retire with a clean slate.” Back in my cubicle, I searched my desk for another roll of antacids. That bastard would bring up Judith again. Dragging my thoughts from the past, I stared at the photos in Griffon’s file. Recently I’d spent so much time staring at her picture I felt I knew her. I no longer called her “Griffon.” She’d become “Sarah.” At night I’d wake up drenched in sweat, tormented…

I slow down my breathing to match the rhythm of the steady chink of my shovel as it enters the dirt, almost reaching a hypnotic state. Anything to keep my mind off what is happening. Chink. An image of me on my knees beside the road flashes before my eyes, and with it comes a searing pain. My shovel misses its mark and…

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    A nerve cell is also called a motor neuron, which is made from a cell body, an axon and axon terminals. The cell body contains a nucleus and dendrites that receive the signals and send it down the axon that is covered in myelin sheath. The axon terminals are connected to the muscles creating a neuromuscular junction. This is where the signal is relayed to the muscle. There are two groups of motor neurons: upper and lower. Upper motor neurons are those found in the brain and lower motor neurons…
