The Red Eye in the Sky

On September 28th, a spectacular natural phenomenon happened and bewildered millions of people over the planet. You guessed it; there was an orange-red moon high up in the sky watching every one of us. The blood moon, as it is commonly referred to, is actually a total lunar eclipse. This is when the moon orbits and goes behind the Earth. The Earth therefore casts a shadow onto the orb of night (the moon) because of the Sun’s rays and makes the latter appear to have a red hue. The light…

Shoe Covers

I remember being seven years old, awaiting my parents’ arrival. My sister and I sat upright in the old polyester green chairs that lined the walls of the waiting area in our elementary school. Our parents were bringing us to our annual dentist appointment. We piled into my father’s big grey van, finding an apple in each of our seats- mom was convinced they cleaned teeth.
