Thoughts and Stories for an Uncertain World is a collection of perspective writings divided into three parts. The first-poems-represents the author's beginnings as a creative writer. The second-essays-is a series of political, philosophical, and historical essays. The third-short stories-is a collection of short stories. I've always had a fascination for the exploration of thought. As a result, my thinking exceeded far beyond the small universe of my public school experience, and I developed a desire for literary expression.
