If you’re a Domestic Violence, Sexual Abuse or Assault survivor, you may often hear someone tell you, “write it out.” My fellow teachers tell me it helps survivors, since I am a quiet person, I will try to express in my writing.

There once was a very wealthy and curious king. This king had a huge boulder placed in the middle of a road. Then he hid nearby to see if anyone would try to remove the gigantic rock from the road. The first people to pass by were some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers. Rather than moving it, they simply walked around it. A few loudly blamed the King for not maintaining the...

By Joseph J. Mazzella on February 09, 2018 / 2,325 views

It was Groundhog Day and the furry rodent had just predicted 6 more weeks of Winter. A winter storm had hit overnight too. I tried to open my backdoor only to find six inches of wet, heavy snow piled up against it. I knew I had quite a job of shoveling out ahead of me, so I reached over to grab my snow shovel. It looked a lot more ready to work than I did. I sighed and pulled on my boots, gloves, and heavy...

Home of Faith. Does the name ring a bell? Yes, you guessed right, it's the obscure little orphanage you over look every time you pass by the gate of our college campus. An upsetting majority of us will navigate these four arduous years without sparing so much as a second glance for this forgotten place. Until last year, I was part of the herd too. But thanks to my roommate, I had the good fortune of...

Hand Me Downs

By Joseph J. Mazzella on February 05, 2018 / 3,123 views

Aside from socks and underwear at Christmas and an occasional new pair of sneakers, I never got any new clothes as a child. What I got were hand-me-downs. My coats, jackets, shirts, sweaters, pants, and even belts were all clothes that my older brothers had out grown and then been given to me. My clothes were often torn, sewed, and patched. They were never “in style.” I didn’t resent having...

Don’t let anyone bring you down so low as to hate them. Release them from the hold they have on you and continue on with peace in your heart. Life is short and is not worth wasting your time trying to figure people out or prove anything to them. The only person you have to prove anything to is yourself. Strive to be the best person you can possibly be, be strong, and walk away. Holding on to bitterness...

I had abruptly run out of printer ink just when I needed it, so I found myself making the long drive to the only store around here that sells it. It was the worst possible time to shop. The store was packed with people and the wait at the checkout counter was long. I could see the stress and frustration on the faces of the people around me. It was no better in the parking lot and I found myself in the middle...

My friend and I were at school one day when this guy was telling us how he didn’t have enough money to buy lunch from the school. We put together out spare change and whatnot and came up with just enough for him to buy lunch....

Polish Thumbs

By Amy Frakowski-Giesecke on January 25, 2018 / 6,055 views

Growing up, I always subconsciously and self-consciously hid my thumbs in my fists because of their weird shape. Admittedly, they do look more like a big toe instead of a thumb and from an early age, my thumbs earned the nickname "toe thumbs." Then, while I was in high school, I worked as a cashier in a grocery store. One day, I was checking out a sweet little old lady and as I counted her change...

It was a cold, dark Winter’s night during my freshman year of college. I was at the local pub drinking steadily with my friends. My body was starting to feel it too. My brain was numb and fuzzy. My vision was getting a bit blurry. My fingers were tingling and my stomach was churning. I felt like I could throw up at any second. Not wanting to embarrass myself in front of my friends I said I was heading...

At times when I’ve been sick, to help me feel better mommy would make me a bowl of soup. I would not only feel better physically, I would feel a whole lot better on the inside too. As we know, it’s so important what we feed our bodies. However, what we feed our minds is also very important, as well as our souls. Love. Joy. Peace. Forgiveness. Kindness. We need to nourish ourselves with these...

Enlightenment is a curious thing. It comes in unexpected moments. It comes in all shapes and sizes. I received a moment of enlightenment just recently from the mouth of a babe. I was heading into the local post office to mail out a few checks to pay a few bills. I saw a young woman who had gone to school with my oldest son. On her hip was her little daughter who was no more than three years old. After talking...

When I was a young man, I had been picking up a friend who had been babysitting. As I was waited for him, I noticed a cage and looked inside. Inside the cage there was a cute little hamster, and I put my finger up to the bars of the cage to pet him. He bit me. I went to the bathroom and washed the blood off of my hands. When I came back I was told, “You missed it! You should have seen it! After you left,...

I have a wonderful story about this young man, Connor, at the Cedar Falls HyVee. He was helping a family in front of me that was scraping pennies (literally) and only had less than $3 on their EBT card, the change was on the conveyor belt and rolled down under the counter. He tried his hardest to get them all. He asked them again how much they had left on their card(EBT), which was less than $3. As he was...
