Passing the ‘test’ on Monday

Written by Quinn Welsch on .

Remember Monday? Things got a little crazy.

I’ve seen heavy rains in Washington state and strong winds in Kansas, but never anything as furious as Monday morning’s tornado warning.

I had just slung my bag over my shoulder when my iPhone began blaring a noise unlike any I’ve ever heard it make. If I was still in Iraq, I would have thought to take cover from incoming mortar fire.


Giving back to our planet

Hi West Baton Rouge,

Louisiana is perhaps one of most beautiful places I have ever lived in.

Wherever you go, there is natural beauty everywhere, in the lakes, bayous, rivers, forests and thickets, even growing alongside urban areas, in the cracks of the sidewalks and on the sides of buildings.


The Facebook Fandango

“Welcome to the dark side.”

            This is how a young friend bade me enter the world of Facebook a few years back. She was right. I can now keep in touch with my huge Catholic family and some long-lost friends out there, but at a cost. There are beautiful things out there in cyberspace, and some creepy and mean ones, too.
