Eleven weeks ago I gave birth to my second daughter, Hope. As we began to adjust to life as a family of four, it became clear to me that each of our girls is unique. Not only are they unique from each other, they are unique from their father & me as well. Harper, my …

The NRA, Gun Owners, Advocates for Gun Control: Why Not Work Together?
There is no doubt that that the mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., has heightened the political debate on gun control in the United States. The Obama-backed gun bills are considered a long shot in Congress. This is due to the opposing views on gun control in congress. One group in Congress is standing behind the …
The Lottery of Life: Bone Marrow Problem for Minorities
In spring of 2011, I remember coming back home from college after a week full of exams. I could not be happier to be home and be able to spend time with my family. I was watching television with my mom that evening. Suddenly during a break, a commercial featuring Aziz Ansari was shown. He …

Through my scouring of the web, …
Is a “Burmese Spring” Happening?
“What about Burma?” Since the beginning of the Arab Spring I have found myself thinking this often. Burma has been torn apart by civil war for over 60 years in what is currently the longest running war in the world. Even today, in a time where Burma seems to be heading more and more towards …
I recently watched Neil Burger’s movie Limitless. It started by depicting the main character Eddie Morra as an intelligent writer who struggled in finding inspiration to finish his novel and could not find an appropriate balance between his work and his relationship.
