A few years ago, when I was going through the deepest point in my depression- my living situation was abhorrent, I had no car, no license and barely enough money to get by. All of this was because of the choices I made but I couldn't seem to find my way out. I was riding the bus home one day from work when an older woman sat across from me and struck up a conversation. She asked me if...

The candidates were called one by one and the...

She said that before she did so, my grandpa pulled her into his lap and gave her the tightest hug ever. Soon after, he closed his eyes and...

The room was dusty and dark, with a slight hint of cobwebs on the ceiling. This wasn't a surprise, for it had been a long time since she had visited that room. A sudden spree of renovation had brought her back to this particular place. Little did she know that this visit would change her life in ways she had never imagined... Pushing her way through the dingy room, she felt around for the...

Today. Today was one of those days where you're at the verge of tears, practically at any moment I could have exploded. Gas tank had 3, maybe 4 notches. Only ramen in the home. Landlord is freaking out over late rent (for an extremely overpriced apartment, so infested with cockroaches that even if we had food, it would have to go in the freezer, but they get in there too) Fiancé was just released...

My husband gave my 6 year old son a $10 bill. This $10 bill went with my son everywhere, from one pair of jeans to another, one hoodie to the other. My son would even sleep soundly with the $10 bill under his head. You see, he was holding out to buy something special. One day my son and I go to the local grocery store where a man was singing carols and ringing a bell for the Salvation Army. My son...

I am returning to my home and stuck in the traffic near Delhi border. The driver of the ambulance was trying to get out of traffic jams and the patient was fighting with his illness. Some were giving space to the ambulance to get out of traffic but some people were not giving it. This shows that even today there are good people in the world and there is also a selfish person as well. It is often heard in the...

All at once, however, I saw someone walking towards me in the distance. As this person got closer and closer I realized that it was me. It was me from many years ago, fresh faced and young. I could see in his...

I was the poor kid growing up. My mom used to send me to birthday parties with no present, just so I could eat. I definitely got to a point where I understood and was embarrassed as hell. In fifth grade, my friend's mom invited me to sleep over the night before the actual birthday party.
