    A mindless leaf fluttered out of nowhere and perched on my sandaled foot. In the distance, a disorganized medley of birdsong made up an unrehearsed orchestra. Idyllic as it was, I was in the middle of a fairly typical snapshot of spring. Yet I had somehow been thrown into the scene with no choice or...

    Black letters flash across the screen, launching an attack of rumors and insults. A text, a Facebook wall post, a Tweet – a line or two is all it takes to wound someone's self-esteem, to bring tears, to ruin a friendship. With the explosion of modern technology, old-school bullying is out and a...

    Twenty minutes into my run, sweat droplets are already slipping down my back, and I’m struggling to remember why in the world I do this. But it comes back to me after one early morning of lacing up for a father-daughter run, one minute of listening to the sound of clamorous chattering and rhythmic...

    Little swallow I am no swallow Singing brightly, Plodding earthbound soaring blindly, reciting flatly dipping low watching wistfully Your wingtips graze My heels clutch the clouds the earth You wear no shackles I have no wing...

    Whether someone is wearing a prim suit or a collection of rags, a person is a person. Yet when a homeless man in New York City was stabbed to death when trying to help a woman being mugged, over 20 people walked past and left him there to die. None of those people called the police. Many push t...

    I wonder sometimes if you can count a weekend as ‘fun’ if you can’t remember it. Kansas may not be the most exciting place in the world, but surely there’s something (or someone) that’s worth not being high or wasted for. Drinking and partying are kind of high school staples, I suppose. Bu...

    There was no “People’s Most Beautiful” list hundreds of years ago. Yet the reverence of all things beautiful is timeless. Our vision of beauty has changed, but the idea is the same. Except that now there’s a place for the beautiful people to get together: BeautifulPeople.com. Emerging...

    Just when it seems that Hollywood has dug itself into a bottomless hole of ridiculous scandals, some of the stars manage to show that we’re all in it together after all. Coverage of the earthquake in Haiti has taken over nearly all the news outlets in the U.S. The devastation in mind-blowing...

    If someone were denied dressing a certain way because of the color of his or her skin, everyone would cry ‘racism.’ But apparently the same courtesy doesn’t extend to sexuality. America is supposed to be the land of the free, but people forget that it’s still far from equal. Whether discr...

    I couldn’t help feeling somewhat guilty as I asked the non-profit supervisor to sign my community service sheet. After all, the point of community service is supposed to be to help the community, not to log hours. But that’s what community service is for many well-off high school students: ano...

    Entertainment is often a feel-good industry. There’s a reason that Jack Black and Will Ferrell movies tend to make major bucks. But even though my eyes didn’t have time to dry at any point during My Sister’s Keeper, it was never depressing. The tears came mostly because it was moving, not s...
