The following are but a handful of the hundreds of essays, articles, and stories Rachel has written and published over the past two decades. (My primary areas of interest include healthcare, public/private education, criminal in/justice, the history of race in America, the art and science of art and science, understanding altruism, exploring humanist and existentialist psychology, finding Christ in Christianity, and learning as much as I can from the seemingly “random” friend, neighbor, or other vital living thing–full of truth–who is almost always ever closer than I realize.)
