    What Is A "Good Man"

    This year has been one of the worst of my life. It started off with living in a sexless relationship and then the end of that long term committed relationship. As the year went on I lost my job, had a close family member die and was diagnosed with a serious illness and everything...

    I Am A Female Soldier

    Simply put in the title. I am a female soldier. But that doesn't mean jack. I have been in over a year and am currently in the reserves as a cook. I have dealt with enough harassment and adversity prior to enlisting and then to hear males talk smack about females in today's...

    I Am A Beacon

    I am a beacon when all other lights go out. I am an angel in a hellish waste land. I am a sheep dog keeping the wolves at bay. I stand on guard ready to throw myself into the fight. I am a hero when I am needed and forgotten by many when I am not. I am hope, I AM A SOLDIER.
