Ryan thought it was time to take their friendship to the next level, but Sabina refused.

They met on the first day of school. The moment he laid eyes on her he was hooked. She stood out dressed modestly and wearing a hijab.

In spite of the cultural differences, they became fast friends sharing their love of Shakespeare and the classics.

“I’m sorry, Sabina said, “but it’s going against our family tradition.”

The rejection hit him hard. But he wasn’t one to walk away. He was determined to help her break free from the shadow of outdated beliefs and practices.

Connor was young and restless. Enlisting in the Army opened the door for his dream of glory. After boot camp, he went to fight in the Vietnam war. From the start, he was fearless. His courage was a cup full to the brim.

But as the dark realities of the conflict sank in and finding himself engaged in one ferocious battle after another, his cup started to empty until there was nothing much left to keep his fighting spirit alive.

Sweating profusely and summoning his last ounce of courage, he shot himself in the foot for a one-way ticket home.
