It was such a gory sight when at about 11am on 16th December 2014,a group of Taliban gunmen made their way into Army Public School in Northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar through a graveyard situated behind the school. They fired shots sporadically at the kids and teachers and this claimed the lives of 145 innocent children with about 186 injured. It was a terrible massacre, a targeted one at that. It is not just a Pakistani tragedy but an International Calamity and one that...

Immigration is a tricky and highly contested issue in American politics and society today. The whole issue becomes “foggy” right from the get-go. The reasons for one leaving may seem voluntary to one person but to another may seem forced. Forced migration is when a person is quite literally forced to leave like a slave, or a refugee whereas voluntary migration is when a person choses to leave for whatever reason. Thus, Immigration isn’t like Abortion or Same-Sex Marriage or G...

Can you hear me thinking ? Because thinking is human. Can you see me existing ? Because my existence is a ' right '. Can you let me be whoever I chose to be ? Because choosing is a ' right '. Can you let me learn ? Because learning is a ' right '. I am a human being and I want one simple thing, yet it is not money and wealth, it is not oil and gas and it is not power and authority, it is simply a normal peaceful world. I want only happiness and joy; believe me all I want...

The HIV and AIDS awareness day was a while ago (December 1st) .A few weeks ago I watched a video from one of my role models Troye Sivan. In this video he talked about HIV and AIDS, and the importance of being informed about it. He said that some days ago he had watched a movie called The Normal Heart, it was about HIV and AIDS. He gave a brief description of the events in the movie that lead him to come to the sudden realization that him, a 19 year old gay man, who has had a ‘’...

Corrugated iron shelters poverty. Cold smoke escapes cold bodies. Warmth is a luxury. Safety is a wish on an eyelash. Humanity decays in overpopulation. It’s the forgotten corner of our beautiful mother city, Cape Town. Khayelitsha, a corner society swept under the rug; a rug that we walk over every day, a rug that we never wash, that lies as a result of our political policies. Children are parents. Children are gangsters. Children are killed. I’m a student who ha...

Terrorism is hurting our world, it’s harming our children, and it’s killing us every day. Thousands or may be even millions of children are suffering because of terrorist groups, because of some people who thought they represent God; any way, killing, bombing and murdering other people is unacceptable, I don’t care about their reasons, I don’t care about their justifications and excuses, it’s just unacceptable no matter what. I feel really bad when I hear about terroris...

In the world today, there are different races, individuals, mindsets and ideologies. This however, does not negate the fact that these 'different' individuals can come to a common ground to achieve a set goal. In times like these, when our globe is inevitably embroiled in civil unrest and political brouhaha, natural disasters, corrupt practices in governments, outbreaks of plagues, human right infringement and so on; it is imperative that all and sundry must stand for what is r...

Opened eyes, closed eyes. When I open my eyes, I can see the gender equality revolution. Suddenly it is so easy for me to succeed where men were thought to be pros, actually it is far easier for me compared to the man who has the same drive as me. I am applying for an engineering job in the same organization as my classmates who more than ¾ are men and a man with the same qualification as me may be left out because they only needed 4 people and from our class 8 boys and 2 girls ap...
