She held in her arms a creation like no other.Blossoms of little flowers grew on her skinbecause of you.She smiled when you thrivedsending down seasons as a pricebecause of you.She cried as envy filled youletting out the anger consuming herbecause of you.She broke down as the pain burned hercreating lands no man has seenbecause of you.She became Mother Earthbecause she saw you, my dear,as a moment of worth.

Teaching history: the power to inspire. To make the younger generation understand the value of patriotism, I believe actions have to be implemented from childhood stages.

We should make the change and emphasis on patriotism in the curriculum in schools and higher education institutions and include more accurate infor...

Please. It’s a simple statement, just a regular word, in such a confusing world. I ask you to please read and understand if you will. Please know that in this world full of dark things, that just around the corner is a brightness capable of filling 8 half’s of planets and countless half’s of moons. Please understand that not all humans are bad, scary things. Of all the people you are yet to meet and the people you might never meet, that person who did those terrible things are an exception - not...

They say we are different,Because some of us wear scarfs on their heads and others sport short haircuts. They say we are different,Because some of us enjoy skirts and others only wear jeans.They say we are different,Because, some of us are Muslims, others are Christians and some others only believe in the stars. They say we are different,Because, we come from different shades of life. Because, we hold different names. Because, we fill life in different shapes. However, are we different?We are al...

As many of us know, there are eight planets in our Solar system, which are classified into Terrestrial planets or Rocky planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars) and Jovian planets or Outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune). Out of all these terrestrial and Jovian planets, Earth has been confirmed as one of the few planets in the entire universe that provides sustenance to life. Over the last few decades, our life giving Earth is under a great threat.Careless anthropogenic activities...

Every night, while most American students are sleeping soundly or toiling away at a homework assignment, nearly ten thousand juveniles across the country have been condemned to spend their nights behind bars in adult prisons because of automatic transfer laws, laws that allow children as young as ten to be tried in court as adults. It’s time for us to reach out to the children sentenced to suffer.In most states, children as young as fourteen years old can be tried as an adult if they commit a vi...

(Thoughts based on the experience of a certain historical lecturer. What would become of us if we stopped fretting about fate and focused on our talents, in a bid to make Africa more better?) The few yawns and doze-offs that she receives from the big audience of three hundred irritates her. She was lecturing the Architectural History course for the fifth time now to the freshman students, and in all sessions, she noted that only a few could maintain their keen up to four hours. “Historical subj...
