I occasionally write about experiences that feel life-changing. Here you’ll find two. They’re serious pieces and deeply heartfelt, so please don’t go in expecting a chuckle.
One is a story that took place while snipers were shooting their way through the Washington area in 2002. I had occasion to spend time with the family of one of the victims while her killers were still on the loose. See What a Day!
The other is a reflection about my only child going off to college. I received an award from American Mothers magazine in a 2006 essay contest for this piece. See Essence of a Growing Boy.
