Unproductive & Useless.

I have always been a very busy person. In college, I led Young Life and worked 1-2 jobs on top of an 18 hour semester workload. While it was physically draining, I developed a love for that pace of life. Well- maybe less love and coping mechanism. When I’m busy, I don’t have time to […]

Welcome to Prison.

Those are words spray painted on the rocks as I drove into the camp today, and from the little bit I saw the camp wasn’t prison, it was hell. Really, I have no right to say that. I did not stay long enough to know the depths. I’m privileged enough to get to walk in, […]

19.

Today would have been Ethan’s 19th birthday. All week, I had a guilt rock just kind of camping out in the pit of my stomach. This guilt stemmed from a fear I was forgetting. A little back story. Since the accident, time and I have not gotten along very well. I have come to dread […]
