I'm so behind, it's maddening. I'm still three days behind, but I was six when the day started, so at least I'm making up some ground. I would like to catch up tomorrow, but that's unlikely.

This isn't real!!! You hear it everyday in the evening news: conflict. In the Middle East, … Continue reading Short Story: The price of war
