They roar with wrath and purr with cleansing. There is no option of escape, no way to float up and out of harm’s way like a fairytal...

    The cool evening air blared her arrival as fanfare before royalty.

The few, sparse inhabitants raised their faced to the source...

    While in the school library with a friend one day, doing my government homework, I quietly read the information on my worksheet aloud. When I came to the requirements to be President of the United States, I blinked and reread one item, thinking I'd made a mistake. I hadn't, though: the Preside...

    As my family has grown, so has my fierce feeling of connection with my Native American ancestors. I am 25 percent Nanticoke, making me a member of the tribe, and almost another 25 percent Cherokee. My entire Native American heritage comes from my dad’s side. Every year, as a sort of tradition, my ...

    Who are you? Do you get sudden outbursts of temper, or are you a calm person? Do you depend on someone, or are you independent? Do you wish for a boyfriend, or are you happy to be single? Who are you? Do you take life as it comes, or are you anxious? Do you stand your ground always, or do yo...
