by John Kelley on June 18th, 2024

The Winning Team
by John Kelley on May 17th, 2024

I Forgive You

Redemption Has A Price
by John Kelley on April 9th, 2024
Our redemption is not a short story. It’s not a quick read, a YouTube short, or a TikTok. It is a layered story that took generations and millennia to happen.
