    I ran across the dirt, my feet making a clopping sound. For some reason Mother always picked me to run errands over at the Forum. And, just my luck, all the shops I needed to stop at were quite a distance apart. So today I had to spend yet another Saturday morning running from shop to shop, gatherin...

    To you I’m probably just Locker Girl. The one that leaves ten minutes later that most. That arrives with binders and trumpets and textbooks. But I’m also more than that. I’m the name on all of those essays. The one other teachers painted White Out over. Did you know that I was that girl?...

    It was a beautiful, unassuming Monday morning; the sort that made you wish there was recess in middle school. My mom was headed for San Francisco on a business trip. My little sister got on the bus to head to the elementary school. And my dad and I were headed for Roosevelt Middle School, him being ...

    They all say that a long time ago you didn’t have to listen real close to hear the crickets. I don’t know about that. I’m thirteen years old and I’ve always had to concentrate to hear them. That’s what I’m doing right now, listening. I like listening to the crickets. They make me feel sa...

    Darkness, it’s everywhere. It’s consuming me. It doesn’t even know I’m awake. It doesn’t even know it’s eating me alive, but it is. Smothering me in heavy black darkness, like a thick wool blanket. Like I’m buried under snow, or maybe even buried six feet under, in the ground, dead, in...

    Screaming. Everyone’s screaming. Bodies lay in the street. Blood trickles softly from them. And us - what do we do? What have we done? We always knew this could happen. We talked about it and thought about it. Some people even forgot about it. But we’ve done nothing. What have we done...

    I’ve had this secret quite a while. But it’s getting rather heavy, Like carrying bricks for many a mile. I don’t want anyone to know. I’m afraid of what’ll happen. I’m afraid they’ll say no. You say that no matter what you’ll love me. But I don’t believe you. At least n...

    I walked into the room, Accompanied by a few peers. And so I sat and awaited my doom. And then they trickled down my face, those wretched tears. In came the principal And my teachers, all four. They glared at us, ever so critical. And then those wretched tears, they started to pour. And ...

    The room fell silent. All eyes were on the teacher, who glared at us, shook her head and stormed out, leaving us alone to gawk at each other, like deer in headlights. It was scary how silent it was for our usually rowdy fifth grade class, and I guess I wasn’t the only one scared, because everyone ...

    Being a Jew, I’m one of the lucky few kids who had an hour of their life stolen from them twice a week because of Hebrew school, our equivalent of Sunday school. Sure, it wasn’t fun sitting there reading a foreign language, but one thing kept me and my classmates from losing it. The rabbi’s c...

    I bolted upright in bed, terrified. Somewhere outside lightning flashed, illuminating the window. Thunder roared in the distance. I just sat there in bed, sweat pouring like the rain pattering against the window, heart beating loud as the thunder. That’s when I heard it- voices. I scanned the room...

    If I ruled the world, Everyone would be equal, Both boys and girls. If I controlled the universe, Everyone would be happy, For better or for worse. If I were the queen, People would be nice, And no one would be mean. If I were a deity, There would be no more war. Instead there’d b...

    We pulled into the parking deck shortly before three o’clock, just as I started stuffing my mp3 player back into my backpack. We pulled into a spot, and I slowly crawled out of the car, savoring every moment I had left before the unavoidable happened, and I was to be forced into doing something I ...

    Is seeing things delusion? Is that what you really think? Is that your conclusion? How about seeing things that one day could be? Craziness? Insanity? Or just letting your mind free? Is this what all those words mean? Is this even real? Or just another dream? What is it to be haunted ...

    In your head, picture a Pit Bull Terrier. Is it big and scary-looking, its mouth wide open, its teeth barred? Or is it an adorable little puppy? If you’re like most, chances are you envisioned a ferocious beast bent on killing you. And, if you’re like most, you’re wrong. I’m sure you...

    It’s twelve twenty-one. I wish I could go to Six Flags. Boy, that would be fun! It’s two twenty-two. Can you get my dad to take me to the park? And let me ride my bike, too? It’s three thirty-three. I’ve changed my mind. I’d rather ask: Could I have a puppy? It’s four for...

    My head held high, I lift off the ground And begin to fly. In the sky I feel so free. Soaring above ground Fills me with glee. My wings at my side, I duck through the clouds, And caw with great pride. I swoop down into a tree. I’m so glad I’m a bird. So glad to be carefree!...

    “There were thirteen of us, and, well, Freddy- he was our tour guide. Two of ‘em were teens, two were kids, four were men, and four were women. And then there was me. What most would consider a survivor. One of the lucky ones. But I would’ve been better off dead. One of the fatalities was my f...

    Is Rod Serling standing near by? This is a telltale sign you are in the twilight zone. No matter how you answer to the following questions, if you see Rod Serling, you are hopeless. Is everything around you irritatingly monotonous? If so, this is probably the calm before the storm. If you l...

    There is an aspect of health class that every student in my school fears. And, shockingly, it’s not the “growing up discussion” on puberty. It’s not even the lesson on tobacco. It’s huffing. Huffing is an issue commonly overlooked. While everyone is worrying about tobacco and alcohol use i...

    Breast cancer. How I hate those words. Renee was a close family friend of mine. She was nice and playful and she knew how to handle me and my little brother whenever she needed to. I sometimes think about how cool it would've been if she lived long enough to be my babysitter. But she died befor...
