In January 2014, I began Seize the Moment with a review of Professor Denis Judd’s Empire: The British Imperial Experience from 1765 to the Present. Fourteen years old and I was reviewing and interviewing Professors of British history. As dorky as that may seem, I am still proud I took the initiative to do something like that. I went on to review many of my favorite books, write political pieces, and conduct interviews with many different authors and figures. I am also proud to have written a seventeen-part series on the Russian invasion of Crimea, articles that I wrote to warn Americans of the threat Russia posed not just in Ukraine but here.
Those didn’t quite worked out as hoped.
But, anyway, for some reason I stopped writing posts around July of 2015. Now, two-and-a-half years later, I am ready to take up the pen again. My writing ability has changed and evolved through those years and I have a stronger grasp on effective communication. I have kept many of my prior interests while developing a passion for new(er) ones. Most of all, I have a reason to write on here again.
I will be writing about a variety of topics of interest to me here. My love for America, foreign affairs, history, classic literature (especially Shakespeare and Dickens), automobiles, and film are just some of the topics I will be writing about. From time to time I may also post some non-article writing I have been working on. I am currently planning on posting a foreign affairs piece each Sunday but will also aim to post other writings throughout the week. I promise to be ethical, reasonable, and prudent in all I post.
This week I will have a few posts to make. Be on the lookout for an analysis of the recent indictments announced by the Special Counsel investigating Russia for interference in the 2016 election. I will post the article on Medium, then post the link to it on this blog.
Thank you for all of the constant support. May I do all I can to keep that trust.
