The Washingtons (ep.7)

Over time, as the parents aged and the kids matured, the groove became more of a rut. They never felt it change though. Reagan found himself feeling less a part of the family, as the girls seemed to do their own thing so often and have more of a connection with Rosy. Rosy was receiving... Continue Reading →

The Washingtons (ep.6)

A home is a wonderful thing. A family is even better. Armistice, when needed, is from God Himself. Put the three¬† together and you have a miracle that many people never experience and that many who experience it take for granted. The Washingtons had hit a sweet spot in life.¬† Reagan was rising early each... Continue Reading →

The Washingtons (ep.5)

One of the, if not the, greatest days of any of the Washingtons' lives was the day the adoption was finalized. It was two days after Easter. The air was still cool in the mornings but the warmth of the sun was beginning to show up in the afternoons. The trees and the grasses were... Continue Reading →

The Washingtons (ep.4)

Adopted. Some people ignorantly attach a stigma to that word. Unity doesn't though. She was born at an early age to her natural mom and mom's boyfriend at the time. One August day when she was around 5 years old, her mom dropped her off in the morning at the Playworld to be picked up... Continue Reading →

The Washingtons (ep.3)

In order to truly grasp the effect of that September Day when Unity was taken away, a deeper understanding of the Washingtons is essential. Perhaps a good starting place would be to put the Rolling Stones' song "Sympathy for the Devil," in a mashup with "Life in the Fast Lane" by the Eagles. Who knows... Continue Reading →

The Washingtons (ep.2)

They shared a room - Liberty and Unity. In a 1600 square foot white frame house on P Street in a northeastern U.S. neighborhood, they weren't wealthy but they weren't poor. Mom and Dad provided all they needed and a little more. Mom (Rosy) was always the generous one, giving them some of anything she... Continue Reading →

The Washingtons (pilot)

Imagine a happy, classic American family: two parents, Reagan and Roosevelt (Rosy for short) Washington, two kids, Liberty and Unity, and a dog and maybe a cat. Let's go ahead and put a goldfish and a guppy in a tank on the bar between the kitchen and dining room. One kid is in dance and... Continue Reading →

nice God.3

So much stupid crap has been done in the name of God that I'm surprised He hasn't changed His name. Take the Crusades, to begin with, starting in 1096. (Stay with me - this won't be as boring as it sounds) The crusades were a series of 8 major expeditions by Christian armies to retake... Continue Reading →

nice God.2

Leah. Ironically, this is an anagram of Heal, and tragically so. But it is another word that brings to mind the "niceness" of God, or Dios, or Dieu, or Elohim, or Allah, based on what language you speak. In April of 2014, about the time that 20 families were dealing with the emotional damage of... Continue Reading →
