The Unicorn

Posted on January 13, 2010 at 12:30pm 5 Comments



Today's Unicorn



For most people, when someone mentions a unicorn, images of rainbows and big eyed, one-horned ponies come to mind.

I wanted a world polarized, good versus evil, where discipline was valued but instead I lived in a world of gray… Continue
