Forde Womack, Editor in Chief

December 16, 2014

The airplane smelled dank and soggy. A few seats over a girl in her twenties sat across from me, stretched out on four seats. I looked to my left and my grandmother sat with her mouth wide open, her snoring partially drowned out by the roaring of the airplane. We had left Kennedy Airport in NYC...
