All the news that's fit to print

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

In addition to the two feature articles I write a month, I'm now doing three news articles a week as part of my freelance writing gig. I'll be posting the articles on my Facebook page, The Write Stuff, as well as linking them here. You can also find all of my articles at my ModVive author page here.

The first six articles I've written:

Truvada, A New Ally in the Battle Against HIV

4th U.S. Case of Mad Cow Disease Confirmed, No Public Health Threat

Mosquitoes Signal Summer and Warnings About Potentially Deadly Viruses

Former Olympian Amy Van Dyken Rouen Severs Spine in ATV Accident

Houston Girl’s Body Kept in Family Refrigerator Since January

Sometimes it's just about staying strong through the things that make you fall to your knees with despair. Sometimes that strength looks like tears. Sometimes it looks like laughter. It's about knowing you can get through the difficult things and that joy will come. It's about finding whatever port you can in the storm, seeking whatever shelter is available and riding it out. Then, it's about having compassion for those who are still in the middle of their own storms. It's about providing that shelter for them if you can and if you can't, it's about giving what you can and standing beside them as their storm rages reminding them that it will not always hurt this bad, it will not always be this painful, but while it is, you are there. Always.
