Free at Last

In 1971, the troubles in Northern Ireland were increasingly becoming a danger to myself and to my children. We were in constant danger from bombs and bullets. This was nothing new. Every day, on the radio, we listened to a horror story of suffering. Our personal horror came one night when we were awakened by two gunmen. One stood at the end of... >Full Story

Remembering September 11th

On September 11, 2001 I said my first prayer. My son was a police officer with the New York Police Department. As I sat watching the Twin Towers burn, at first I thought that he was fine since he worked a desk job at One Police Plaza. But what if he went over to help? “Please God,” I said, “if... >Read More



Finding True Love

As an Officer Cadet, it was not difficult to get dates. The uniform and the invitations to military balls ensured a steady supply of girls who were willing to date me. Kingston also had a hospital with a resident nurse’s training program and a civilian university, so there were always girls living away from home and seeking companionship. I...... >Read More

But what can top 11 days in space and 3 days trekking around the moon? I was... >Read More



The Goal of My Life

They call the winning goal I scored in the last game of the 1972 Canada/Russia hockey series 'The Goal of the Century.' I still get a warm feeling when I think about it. Fear is one of the best motivators, and I was very afraid that I would be part of the team that lost to the Russians. Canada is... >Read More



The Quest for Acceptance

My life has been a quest for recognition and acceptance. A mid-childhood immigration experience left me at a cultural disadvantage in Canadian sports. I found solace in the army cadet corps and “nerd-like” achievements. Family finances and positive experiences in the Canadian militia reduced higher education options to one: enroll in the Regular...... >Read More



Are Truth and Love in the Stars?

As long as I can remember, I've been looking for truth and love. Truth, because I'm gullible and I have been hurt as a result. Love, because I felt insecure and lonely. I figured that there must be someone I could trust to open myself up to who would not ridicule me. As I looked for truth and love... >Read More
