The first encounter of death I had was that of my grandfather when I was seven. I still can recall the ceremony before he was buried when some of us, his grandchildren were carried and passed over his coffin one by one. Someone on the other side of the coffin caught each one of us until everyone was over. I did not know why it was being done and I never bothered to ask anyone until now about the meaning of this ritual.

It’s been a while since I was in High School, but when I think back on my time in High School, there are certain memories that come back to the sports and clubs I was involved with, the friends I had, and the teachers that made an impact in my life, but none of these things haunt me as heavily as meeting “Chris”. We’ll call him Chris to respect his privacy. Continue reading When Killing Yourself Doesn’t Work: There’s Hope (3 min read)
“How come you didn’t know how to handle money?” “It’s just like this” showing her little fist tightly close as if she was holding a fight. That was the voice of my 5-year-old daughter many years back.

With the Olympics happening in Rio de Janeiro and the country on the world stage, it has nevertheless been berated with heavy criticism. Whether if it is the Zika virus, safety concerns, or complaints about the city’s unpreparedness, it seems like people lump all the problems happening to generalize Brazil as a dismaying place. I am here to tell as a person who has been there that the positives of Brazil greatly outweigh the negatives.

I was really struggling to write the past few days. It was hard to embrace the commitment to create at least once a week to give it away. This is something familiar because I made a lot of commitment to myself many times in the past.

“Life is like a river that’s constantly moving. It’s what we do with the River when it’s moving that counts.”
What does that even mean? Your life is a River. Whether we make a difference in our lives or not, our lives are not stopping and waiting for our choices. It keeps moving. They key to a moving river is making sure you have resources to ride the waves. If you do not have the resources, how do you get them? Ask for them. You can work to earn them.

Growing up, my sister and I were never close. It was when I entered college that we started opening up with each other. I usually share stories of what college feels like and she usually share stories of her achievements or random stuff about school. As time passes by, she became not just my sister or my best friend rather, she became my “person.”

There are some places where you see evidence of the incredible beauty of God’s creation everywhere. Westmore, Vermont is one of those places. A small town with a population of around 300, Westmore is part of three Vermont counties known as the Northeast Kingdom. This is the name that former governor George Aiken gave to the three counties of the northeast corner of Vermont. In a 1949 speech, he said, “You know, this is such beautiful country up here. It ought to be called the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.” The name stuck. Continue reading Age and Distance (1 min read)

I have a newly spry and happy go lucky 14-year-old daughter. She is in full-blown teenager mode and I find myself in the thick of this obscure awkward phase of our relationship. Parenting along side of the teenage GIRL is an odd slippery slope and sometimes a really fun precious place to be.
