September Sky
I'm here to die
Under the September sky
My life to give
In place of lies I'd never live
My choice to make
Instead of oaths I'd have to break
I'm here to die
Under the September sky
My hands are tied
But wings of spirit help me fly
No tears to cry
I give it all to do what's right
I'm here to die
Under the September sky
In God I trust
And do his will always I must
His guiding hand
Holds me up to strongly stand
I'm here to die
Under the September sky
I'll never see
All the wonders still to be
My moment's here
But faith and peace replace my fear
I'm here to die
Under the September sky
I hope you can
Someday learn and understand
The gifts you own
Protect and share so others know
I'm here to die
Under the September sky
My rest is nigh
And into peace I freely fly
My real life
To come after my final sigh

The Walking Shoes
The Walking Shoes
© 2011 C.E. Thornton
Sally Olson shuffled her way to the nearest thrift store on her dilapidated old flip flops. Her mom had only $8 to give her for a new pair of shoes. Or rather, an old pair of shoes. The pair of sneakers she had just outgrown after only two weeks of having them were now in her sister Amy's closet, waiting for the 8 year old to fit into them.
"Sometimes I wish mom would just try buying a lottery ticket but she says they're wasteful," Sally thought. "Maybe we'd get lucky-you never know! Maybe then there would actually be money for new clothes year round."
Sally made her way to the shoe racks on the right-hand wall of the thrift store. She was going to find the newest looking pair she could. The last thing she needed was to get sneakers that fell apart in another week.
But then her eyes fell on a dingy pair of old walking shoes, which she picked up, curious that anyone would donate a pair that had obviously seen better days.

A Hero's Impact
I hate subways. I cannot breathe underground, terrified the train will break down and I'll be buried alive. Nevertheless, I rode two hours, from one end of Manhattan to the other, to see a statue at City Hall. If I wasn't courageous enough to take the subway to "meet" one of the bravest men in American history, I was hopeless.
In the end, a police officer had to take a picture of the statue for me as it stands past the security checkpoint. He had one question for me:
Who was Nathan Hale, anyway?
Hero: a person of distinguished courage or ability, admired for brave deeds and noble qualities.
Nathan Hale is the State Hero of Connecticut.
Where do you find a hero?
Lora Innes was 25, researching for a historical web comic about the Revolutionary War, The Dreamer.
"I began researching the roots of 18th century espionage and all the trails lead back to a young man named Nathan Hale…I became so fascinated in this young man's life, and the impact his death had on espionage for

One Life
Joseph Lawrence was dying.
He lay on the ground, the blood blossoming from his side where the musket ball had gone in, and out again. He heard the shouts of victory around him. But he could not cheer along; he could not do anything, except wait for the coldness growing inside to consume him entirely. The thought terrified him.
Someone carried him out of the way of running feet. "We took the fort, Joseph," he heard his friend Andrew's voice above him. "Gibson, help me stop the bleeding!"
The sounds around Joseph bled into one another, and his eyes turned upward toward the heavens. The sky was so hot, but clear, like that day…
It was late September, 1776, and the sky was that clear, cool blue reserved for autumn, aside from the smoke that still rose from the previous night's fires in one direction. Joseph was sixteen, almost a man, and he was breaking the Sabbath to help his uncle, to whom he was apprenticed, pack up and leave New York for South Carolina, where Joseph's family still

Cornelia's Inkworld Plans
Hey guys!
I have really exciting news I wanted to share with you immediately!  A few minutes ago I asked Cornelia the following question on her official Facebook page (on a picture of Reckless - her most recent project - illustrations she made):
"I love your drawings so much! Might I ask if you also did sketches for the Inkworld characters? Or did you only take written notes? I'm just really curious :)"
And I got the following answer:
"I didn't, Denise. But I intend to write an Inkworld short story that I'll also illustrate. I already wrote three, but there will be another one. We will release them either on my webste or on a YouTube channel we are currently creating"
An illustrated, completely new Inkworld short story? I'm SO excited!   Honestly though, I am so excited to hear that! I just had to tell you. :>
That is all. (Oh, and in case you're wondering: Yes, I'm still working on my Inkworld page, but the last few months had been really exhausting and

Personal Quote: I just want to live, so I can die happy. ;)
Since I so rarely make art anymore I probably won't be updating my deviations or blog on this page anymore, though I will still use it to comment/fav things. From now on I'll update from my tumblr:

I post writing, my vlogs, and will eventually post art, from there, so if you're on tumblr swing on by! If you don't like tumblr but still want to keep in touch I will be frequenting this site plenty still, if not updating, so no worries. After all, I'm still in charge of the Nathan Hale fans of DA!

Ciao, peeps!

Thanks. I'm mediocre at best but that's because I never pursued it actively, but you're kind to compliment it. :)
