THE DIFFERENCE YOU MAKE FOR ONE, CAN IMPACT THE FUTURE FOR MANY.

It was a tough season. A REALLY tough one. One that many would have given up on after only a few unsuccessful games. But not this group of young men. They fought til the end.

My boys go to a quickly-growing private school in Illinois. We love the school, but one of the...

The sign made me stop in my tracks. I was literally blow away by two simple words . . . EVERYBODY ONLY. It's located at a private school called New Hope Academy in one of the wealthiest counties in America. In a school that breaks cultural barriers and promotes eq...

I love when I'm able to look back on life and see how it all connects into one moment. Many times, our lives seem like a chaotic mess randomly roaming the world trying to find a place to land. But in the end, that interweave of trials, tribulations and celebrations can...

I know your intentions are good, but I don't think the words accurately describe reality. I mean, some people are truly color blind. There are thousands of people who are just like Mark Zuckerberg. Well, their bank account may look a tad bit different, but if you can't...

It's hard to say goodbye, especially when you're not ready or not expecting to ever see someone again. Not knowing that the last hug or smile will be just that . . . the last one. As a photojournalist, I know that the images I capture tell stories, preserve memories, a...

All it took was just a few words to take an exciting adventure and turn it into a hurtful memory. I was so stunned at what the pilot said it to me that I didn't even muster up enough guts to respond. Of course, 14 years later, I now would have a cleaver come-back to he...

"Just a heads up . . . I think I may faint." Those were the last words I whispered to the nervous nursing student sitting next to me in the second row of a tiny church in a remote Uganda village. The rest of the story that follows is one for the books!

A bit of bac...

It was a breathtaking structure. And an awe-inspiring experience to explore the historical amphitheater in El Djem, Tunisia that once held 35,000 spectators. I remember sitting at the top of the steps overlooking what once stood as a fortress in history that is long-fo...

There is speculation that if the Earth was flat and you stood on a mountaintop, you could see the flame from a lit candle nearly 30 miles away.  Others argue that the number is much, much smaller, but no matter what you believe, you can't deny that a little flicker can...

I love Christmas time, but I have to admit that I don't like the popular phrase used to describe it during this short time of the year. The older I get, the more those three little words bother me. It even makes me cringe.
