They were the same as they always were: trailer after trailer for superhero movies (in which the leading man falls in love with the ...

  Like most animal-loving five-year-olds, I wanted a four legged friend more than anything in the world. I cried, stomped, whined, and threatened to run away from the house to get one. But where I saw a fluffy best friend that would love me until the end of time, my parents saw vet bills and a ...

I am crying. I am crying for the hundreds of thousands of people who won’t be allowed to come home for at least 90 days, for some 120. I am crying for those who hold a green card or were merely traveling for business or pleasure when they were stopped from coming home to their family. I am crying f...

He’s part of the family; one of the daughter’s best friends as long as she can remember, seeing as they got him when she was two, but now she’s 15. Now imagine the backyard gate is accidentally left open, and th...
