The Story

Sometimes it’s not the prescriptions of religiosity that heal. Sometimes it takes something more.  Richard Ellis remembers “hurting so badly I just wanted to die.” In reality, he didn’t really want to leave this place, he simply needed things to make sense.

He packed his bags and took off from that cliché of an existence only to find himself knocking on the door of significance.
