Les Miserables: Is It Worth It?

Les Miserables: Is It Worth It?

Liliana Owen, Journalist

November 25, 2019

Imagine a man, a holy priest, who has done nothing but good in his life. One day a criminal comes along and asks to stay the night. Being the good man that he was, he said yes. But when morning came, the man was gone, taking with him the priest’s most prized possessions: a silver tableware set, his last worldly treasure. The criminal was caught by the police and dragged back, where the priest was asked to confirm the man’s claim that it had been a gift. What does the priest do? Does he tell the truth and send the man to prison for life, or tell a lie and let the criminal go free, giving him a second chance at life?

Lost Past, Lost Future

Lost Past, Lost Future

Liliana Owen, Journalist

October 22, 2019

The full moon lights the walkway to my home as I quietly but quickly make my way to the front door. All the lights are off, which is normal enough in my house at midnight, but something doesn’t quite feel right. Or maybe it’s just the full moon in the sky? I’m a rather superstitious person. I open the door, and step inside. The moonlight does not seep through the thick curtains, and in the pitch blackness, I see nothing. I flip the switch and pull off my shoes, giving my tired feet a break. Then I notice the person standing in the doorway between the living room and the dining room. I jump and frown. How did he get there? Who let him in?

TBG: What was your favorite place city to visit? Ethan Cannon: They were all amazing, but my favorite was probably Antequera, since we got to go to El Torcal and see the amazing rock formations there. Gibraltar was a close second because we got to see (and even hold!) the macaques monkeys that live there.

There’s something magical about young people making it big.
