    Drown In The Ocean

    I don't share this story with many because when I do they think I am off my rocker.   I am 58 years old. When I was about 6 or 7, I went to the ocean with my family.  I wandered a little too far into the ocean and I got stuck in the undertow.  I...

    Why I Haven't Touched It Since

    When I was little I used to love to go swimming in the waves. I'd fearlessly tread out as far as my mom would let me and Bon up and down with the waves. I should have been more careful. But really so should my parents. I had no way of knowing what a rip tide was, and no one told...
