We All Need Through People

The mountain roads of Kentucky. Do you never find yourself stuck on a word? Where you look up it's meaning and chew on it a while? From time to time, I'll have a word stick in my mind that I can't seem to shake. When that happens, I've come to realize I'm in the classroom again. I'm the student and there's something I am supposed to learn through the process. Recently, the word that's been tumbling in my mind is through.  If you look it up online, you'll find: preposition & adverb  1. moving in one side and out [...]
