    Dec 13, 2013

    Alfredo Camacho

    Transitioning back to civilian life after combat was a lot different for 65-year-old Richard Knight than it has been for 29-year-old Wesley León-Barrientos. Unlike during the Vietnam War-era when Knight was a soldier, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is today a widely recognized diagnosis among veterans who have seen combat in Iraq and Afgh...

    The Everyday Yogi: One Man's Journey to Find Himself Through Yoga

    Oct 07, 2013

    Cesar Flores

    Sep 03, 2013

    Malcolm Rivera

    By the end of this school year, I had gained five pounds from junk food alone. The embarrassing moment that made me want to do something about my lack of physical fitness was when I found myself panting after only having gone up five flights of stairs. And so, on June 10th of this year, I began my journey toward a better me.

    Youth: Don’t Battle Depression Alone

    Jul 08, 2013

    Karla Martinez

    It is hard to believe that so many young people, with so much life ahead, are willing to give up the most precious gift ever given — their own life. But it’s true. According to the Center for Disease Control, suicide is the third leading cause of death for youth between the ages of ten and twenty-four in the United States.
