The Story is titled “Once, I Found that I Might Be a Good Friend.” This was the first story I had accepted for publication, I still think that it’s a good piece, and it has a special place in my heart. It’s about a kid that thinks he has the tenacity to solve the world’s problems. He does not. The magazine is called Children, Churches, and Daddies (the stipulation for publication being that the author not discuss family or religion). Just click on the Banner above , scroll to the name Ben Leib (listed in alphabetical order by last name), and click on it.

Cc&d magazine originally started as a print-only magazine, and within a year was placed on the web. Because of years where the magazine did not exist except in collection books, cc&d magazine has made every effort to continue to have issues available for free online. Print issues are offered to people who are interested in keeping a hard copy for their own records, but since over the years cc&d magazine has been available for free on the web, free print copies are not given away.
