What If This Was You?

It's not what you would expect

What If This Was You?

I glance back and forth from Isabella and the outside world. Everything looks different. Maybe it is the smoke whipping around or is it the smell of flesh burning at 500 degrees?

Isabella is just standing there, calm as can be. She has a gash on her cheek, and gigantic burns down her legs. She walks over to a huge leap of metal that would have been a wing from the airplane. What looks like a four year old’s hand sticks from it, dripping in blood. You could see the tendons and ligaments hanging. What should be a pinky finger twitches a couple times, and then falls limp.

Isabella lets out a bellowing scream, not from pain, but being scared. There is no echo…No birds flew away from the sound either. Nothing…

Huh. Weird.

I start to move towards her, but something is wrong. There is no sound coming from my shoes. All I am hearing is the sounds coming from the outside world.

I look down at my body. My shoes are tattered and ripped. My jeans are holey, and on my calf, there is a chink of flesh and muscle missing. There is a piece of glass stuck in my leg, right on the side of my thigh. On my right hand, I am missing my last three fingers.

What is the world?! What happened?! Why can I not feel any of these injuries? Am I just in shock? I doubt it; I should be able to feel these.

“There you are!” exclaims Isabella. She starts to make her way towards me.

Should I meet her half way? No. I am not taking the chance of feeling the pain of these injuries.

Oh my gosh, are you OK?! You look terrible!” Isabella is telling me these things, as I look her over multiple times, just to make sure she is in one piece.

“I’m fine! Are you OK?” I’m reexamining her just to make sure. She grasps my hand.

“Yes, I’m fine!”

“Good!” I sigh.

We turn toward the sunset. We finally start to placing one foot in front of the other, walking towards the beaming light.

“Where are we?”

I look her straight in the eyes and say, “I guess we are exactly where we are supposed to be,” as we walk straight into the light, and disappear. Forever.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
