Even though I am from Kansas, I enjoy venturing into other worlds from around the globe which is why my writing focuses on diversity. With fluid accessibility to modern media and traveling opportunities, my Midwestern world can expand and explore beyond my own backyard. In addition to studying cultures, I take pleasure in studying history. Submitting to a moment in time allows us to remember, or to muse even, over our society’s past. Although writing can educate as well as entertain, yet what makes art incredibly amazing, to that of paintings, photographs, and music, it transposes emotion into another form of humanity, and therefore, it is our humanity which keeps all of us striving for an improved future.

The Influences Behind 'Eyes Behind Belligerence'

It has been seven decades since the attack of Pearl Harbor, now leaving behind faded, fallen ashes. In America’s more recent history the ashes of the Twin Towers replaced those memories, and replaced how we define ourselves as a country. Understandably so. Looking behind us we do still see those who have survived the 20th Century and continue to survive well into the 21st. Who exactly am I referri Read more of this blog post »
