A couple of great things happened recently.  Yesterday, I gave my speech as a guest speaker for the Marine Parents Care Package Project and I met the most amazing, self-less, and kind people that live in my own city.  I had some great conversations with a few military parents and some military veterans that were there.  I absolutely love meeting nice people.  It always motivates me to keep creating.
 
Then, I got home afterwards and found out that the new issue of Diagram is up, and I'm in it (it's up on the Publications/Events page of my website if you want to check it out).  And then, a few hours pass and I jump online once last time to see an e-mail from an editor saying he loved my work and put it up on his site that day (protestpoems.org).  This was a very blessed day full of great surprises.
