La vida en un régimen dictatorial que ante el mundo se disfraza como democrático, es difícil, muy difícil no saber lo que realmente es vivir en paz, sin temores, sin miedos, sin preocuparse cada vez que tus hermanos salen de la casa, fingir que todo está bien mientras la inseguridad, la escasez y la pobreza toca tu puerta. Sin embargo debemos callar ya que la libertad de expresión solo es una palabra más sin significado en nuestras experiencias. Pero cómo tenerla si los...

780 million people still continue to suffer from unclean water . And more than 3.4 million people die annually from poor sanitation that cause disease. Many countries either lack the economical support to get clean water or the area is not able to hold water due to lack of rain. This causes the people of these areas to struggle. Since the late 40's clean water has been and epidemic ( Example - Geneva Convention 1949 - Article 89 - Sufficient drinking water shall be supplied to inte...

Who: There are currently around 7.1 billion people in our world today. Most of these people will know the confort of a warm bed or know how good a warm meal tastes but there are some people who will not only not know these feelings but never will. Specifically I'm talking about 870 million people that livei in different countries. Some like Africa and India are very populated and their governments aren't able to provide for all of the citizens. What: Poverty and Hunger are...

When you hear the word GENERATION X, in TV’s and radios, it gives a different “arrive”, “power” and “style”. If you’re like 18-22 years old or in the mid-20’s, then you embody what you call GENERATION X. But I always wonder what does “X” stands for, considering youth today, if before, one great hero uttered that we are hope of the motherland…is it valid until now? As I can picture, GEN-X peoples are the ones who are always looking down not because they are...

When the topic is all about studying, most probably you will see students rolling their eyes over, if not complaining, about the hellish examination they have recently undergone. While a very few have almost painted success at the back of their minds and have viewed the great horizons that hopefully awaits them, some are still searching, not even sure about how they are faring so far. Indeed, studying has been one of the most compelling and yet most overlooked issues teenagers face...

'The woman is a reflection of her man' She does not know if this was ever how she thought her life would turn out to be; She has no memory of her dreams and visions anymore; she is dull, depressed, anxious, lonely. She is numb. How did she ever fall for this monster? Her worst moment, she recalls, was when he knocked her to the ground, and kicked her hard; everywhere; her head, back, stomach. But it was not the beating or insults hurled, that made this moment particularly bad...
