A Poem To 9/11 Families and Heroes

You are my heroes.

A Poem To 9/11 Families and Heroes

Dear Nation,

I am sorry for the way,

How it only took one person to attack,

On an early Tuesday,

A nation that has each others backs.

Many lives were lost,

Moms, Dads, Sisters, and Brothers,

So many lives were tossed,

And the people who watched it on the news could have been their grandmother.

No one truly believes how much,

One quick minute can change the nation,

With so many lives being touched,

On the greatest country of God's creation.

One day that no one forgets,

That many first responders gave,

Over thousands of tears and sweat,

From thousands of individuals who were very brave.

So each and every day,

Out of the year,

Pray for the families who are not okay,

And for the ones who are still with us here.

On One September morning,

The world changed at a blink of an eye,

Without any type of warning,

So please, by all means, cry.

Thank you for being strong,

And for risking your life,

For what has seemed like has been so long,

Your daughters, sons, husbands miss you and even your wife.

So here's to my sister's dad,

Who I do not even know,

She is absolutely an amazing person and I hope you are glad,

And you, sir, are one of my thousand heroes.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.
