Sometimes it takes something larger than yourself to inspire action. War has been a tyrant that has battered civilizations since time immemorial, many to never surface again and for many to surface stronger than before. It is said that history is written by the victors, and there are always new attempts to give another perspective … Continue reading No Man’s Land
'What happened to your hand?', my friend asked me as he looked at a strip of new skin running along the inside of my wrist, six inches in length. 'Remember my surgery?', I respond casually. The path to recovery after a traumatic ordeal is always challenging- one that teaches you a lot about yourself … Continue reading Recovery
