Solar power’s quiet revolution

In 2003 my county’s sheriff’s department applied for a grant, in cooperation with the school system, to buy a solar powered warning sign.

A wound that never heals

A six year old’s perspective on coming face-to-face with what it means to lose a son

I must have been six, or maybe just a little older, but I was with my Mom, Dad, and Grandmother, and we were visiting some dear friends of hers, the Whitakers. This was Goldsboro, North Carolina, and “visiting” on
