It felt strange. A few days before the 3rd anniversary of my best friend's disappearance, I was working at one of the local grocery stores when I swear I saw her in the same aisle. Quickly I ran after her, but on a Saturday, that store was extremely busy. By the time I got to the end of the aisle, I couldn't find her. My heart was racing, I was losing my breath and it felt like I had just lost her all over again. Looking around frantically, I realized that everyone was staring at me, so I took off towards the break room. I couldn't believe what I had just witnessed. Was that really Sarah? She's been missing for so long, we'd all pretty much lost hope of ever finding her, but clung to the idea that finding her body would be better than the unknown. For so long we've searched for her, we've had lead upon lead turn up a dead end, and her family and friends had all spent hours searching the nearby woods looking for this beautiful, vibrant teenager.

Those on Capital Hill who are enabling him have been in Washington for decades, and they know better.
American pith helmets cropped up as the various branches of the United States military vied for top position on the sniper rifle range. A chill enveloped the crowd of service-members on this late autumn day in December. The main draw of the entire proceedings remained Sergeant Kinyetta “Down Range” Barkin. She was a 5’5” goddess with a gun. She boasted soft features and long hair that her donut bun belied. Her skin was the color of black diamonds and pearls and she possessed a shapely figure that her cammies also hid.
The enormous student-loan debt in the United States is old news, but it has returned to the consciousness of the American public as a campaign promise.
