I love the adventure in traveling and how it realigns your social compass to help point you in the right direction. We are here on Earth to learn from one another not destroy each other. I hope to learn from writers here on Vocal.
Education: The Measure and Means of Democracy in Society My Life’s Education Early on a cold morning, Thursday November 7, 1974; to an Irish Mother and Armenian-Italian father, inside a Racine, Wisconsin hospital that no longer stands; After subjecting my mother to 11 hours of horrendous labor; I was thrust upon this world with no understanding of who or what I would become. Only possessing my innate abilities to breath, eat, sleep, and cry I was officially matriculated to this world’s classroom awaiting to be nurtured through all of life’s lessons in and outside educational establishments. Without a predetermined lot in life; that autumn morning, a fantastic set of circumstances converged resulting in the random probability of my life becoming a reality and setting into motion what type of personality I would possess and develop, what values would forge my character, and what the combination of these would result in the interests I pursued.
Cartagena Before Lunch
Cartagena Before Lunch By: Meko Kaprelian The sudden jolt of changing altitude and speed is felt collectively throughout the plane; but nowhere is it felt more intensely than in my left hand as my wife squeezes it tightly with her right hand as she clutches the good-luck pendants around her neck with her left hand while giving silent prayer or thanks for our safe return to the Earth’s surface. We’ve arrived! Cartagena, Colombia; a trip to commemorate our five years of marriage and exploring this planet together. This trip had been a vague target on our travel radar since we tipped off our engagement with a three-week European vacation that included Barcelona, Paris, and Rome as our destinations. My wife’s reply of “Yes” a top Montjuic in Barcelona on that hot summer day not only agreed to marriage but also to a life-time of travel as well. Love was not the only bug biting that day and thus began our life of global-adventure together.
