The others among us

“You wutless!” One of the latest phrases directed to me as I stood on Lamaha Street a few days ago.

The masks we wear

Most of us have had days when we felt like giving up; when misery seemed to be wrapping its arms around us and whispering that there was no hope.

Celebrate what?

When I hear the word “independence,” I think self-determination. It sparks in me a certain pride at the ability to stand on one’s own, build and show the world that you are creator and custodian of your destiny.
