"Whenever you are confronted with an opponent, conquer him with love.”
- Mahatma Gandhi

It’s chilly outside, rain is falling and a warm fire crackles. It’s that time of year for families and friends to come together in love and friendship.

Yet, it is a hard time of year for a lot of us. As others are celebrating, some are...

"You enter the forest at the darkest point, where there is no path. Where there is a way or path, it is someone else’s path. You are not on your own path. If you follow someone else’s way, you are not going to realize your potential."

-Joseph Campbell

I recently went to a writer's conference and in one of the classes we talke...

“Hope is like peace. It is not a gift from God. It is a gift only we can give one another.”

-Eli Wiesel 

Life is unfair. For most of my life I have struggled with this. Poor people get the short end of the stick and the rich get away with a lot.

Attractive people make better impressions and we are judged by the color of our sk...

“Trump chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, disses Puerto Rico saying, "...that place was corrupt" and suggests "...it’s a foreign country.”

Is Puerto Rico a foreign country? Is it corrupt???

There is a lot of confusion as to what "La Isla del Encanto" is.

I have had people I know ask me if Puerto Ricans speak Mexican; if...

"Books are my inspiration, writers my heroes.”

- Olivia Castillo

I grew up in the Bronx, NY.  I had an older sister and three younger brothers. In those days there were no videos, computers, iPhones, game boys, Xboxs, or PlayStations. We had only three TV channels and shows for kids were in the mornings, afternoons, or on S...

As an American citizen born on the mainland, one of my rights is the right to vote. I have had this taught to me as a small child in every grade at school. Teachers, books, media and my own parents hammered this into me. My mother would always ask us if we voted, and she stressed how important it was to be current on events...

I live in the land of the quakes, California. We are no stranger to rocking and rolling. Since I moved to California at 17, I have seen my share. There was the 1984 Whittier quake measuring 5.9, the 1989 San Francisco quake measuring 6.9 with its collapsed freeways, killing people and causing untold damage...the 1994 North...

It’s almost October the official beginning of the holiday season for me.

I love the holidays. I love Halloween and I even dress up. I love Thanksgiving, and getting together with family and loved ones. I love Christmas and getting the tree up and house decorated.

It hasn’t always been a good time of year for me. I remember...

Watching the news of Hurricane Dorian miss Puerto Rico and then-decimate the Bahamas has been heart breaking. Watching someone’s world fall apart is a terrible experience. It’s even more gut wrenching when it’s your own world and those of people you love. None of us will escape this. It’s an inevitable consequence of being...
