Good day, my friends.
I’m coming to you with another serious blog post. I don’t tend to post things like this unless it’s something serious, whether it’s local or national. Today’s post touches on a sensitive issue: racism Continue reading “The Education of Racism”
Good afternoon, writers, bloggers, and everyone in between.
It’s nice to be back on the blogging forum. My family and I got back from vacation a week ago, but we’ve been trying to get back into a routine. And with the beginning of the school year fast approaching, it’s been difficult. We have the majority Continue reading “Writing Down Memory Lane”
Good day, my blogging friends.
For those of you new to my blog, every once in a while, I go off the writing tangent to share my insight on topics I feel are important. One such topic is mental illness.

Hello to my writing and blogging friends.
Today, I’m going to share a few things about this month that have significant influence on me as a writer and person. Continue reading “An Active Month”
It’s not easy raising children, believe me. It’s especially difficult when you have a child that is not deemed “normal” to the rest of the world. Continue reading “Jaxon, My Son”
I heard an enraging statistic over the radio this morning. We’re forty-six days into 2018 and there have been eighteen reported school shootings. The latest happened yesterday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. An expelled nineteen-year-old student shot and killed seventeen students and faculty and injured fourteen others. It is one of the ten worst mass shootings in American history; the second worst school shooting next to Sandy Hook. Continue reading “Giving Power to My Children”
I have to say that being a parent is the hardest thing in the world. Anyone who says otherwise is fooling themselves. There are days where I wish I had a handbook for parenting. I’m someone who can follow directions well when I have them in front of me. But when it comes to parenting, no amount of visual aids can prepare you for every situation that will arise.
Today, my wife shares about her week and reflects on her parenting journey thus far. I hope you enjoy.
For those of you who don’t know, my son was diagnosed with autism. It’s an eye-opening experience. My wife started a blog chronicling the challenges of raising him, as well as keeping the family dynamic together. Just this past week, she had an “A-Ha” moment. Here’s her post.
We’re thirty days away from Christmas. (Hard to believe.) And by this time, kids and adults are compiling their Christmas lists. So I am going to give you my list of things I want for Christmas. And if you didn’t guess by the title, everything will be writing-related. Now, this is only a wish list. I don’t expect to get any of these items. But if there’s anyone willing to gift me any of these items, “Thank You” will be in order. Continue reading “My Writing Christmas List”
This week, my kids are off for the Thanksgiving holiday. Good for them. I have to work Thanksgiving Day and the day after, A. K. A. “Black Friday,” so I’ll be having Thanksgiving a day early. But as I’m preparing the for the upcoming days of madness, I’m thinking about how Thanksgiving was when I was my kids’ age.
