Zambia is a landlocked country located in the central part of southern Africa. It is made up of more than 70 ethnic groups scattered all over the country. All these groups have different cultures and beliefs. Despite having so many ethnic groups, Zambia boasts of being a peaceful country since gaining independence in 1964. This does not just come but requires understanding and having a spirit of embracing one another. Logically speaking with so many ethnic groups with different...

Do we need to consider religion or the caste of a person when we associate with someone? I think the answer should be, NO. It's different to expand our thinking ability because horizons mean what the limitations are, on behalf of our emotions. You should be an emotional person, but not break your qualities as a human being. Furthermore, If you are living with a narrow mind (with emotions), you may be afraid to go through that too. Here is a recent example: Almost three...

As I walked down the normally tranquil Kensington High Street, I noticed something rather unusual. The street was no longer tranquil and quiet. Instead you could hear chanting, something along the lines of "1. 2. 3. 4. Occupation no more. 5. 6. 7. 8. Israel is a terror state." Now for your average shopper this can be quite surprising, but the message hundreds of thousands of Londoners were trying to get across is that what Israel is doing is wrong. The murder of innocent Palest...

I guess sense of patriotism is familiar to every of us. How many times we heard about it in our schools and then in colleges, at home and of course on TV. We know it, but don't appreciate what we have. I'm from Ukraine. I sure a lot of people or have never heard about this country, or heard a little (for example only about of the tragedy in Chernobyl, or know something about our famous sportsmen (Andriy Shevchenko, Vitaly and Volodimir Klichko and so on). I would like to say it...

That's the kind of question, you don't get often. Well, i have seen it; and how the firmament, with gaudy clouds and safe havens made a home for man. How a nation, as mighty as fate, worked in peace. How employers revised no preferential treatment; how schools were built and laid on transparent education, and how girls ''ill-fated right'', to education and health care became a thing of the past. The world is going to change soon, but when? Some may ask. The issue is, we're the CHANGE! The gover...

Islam, a faith that is so similar to Christianity yet so different has left many confused yet it is a prevalent faith that has dominated in numbers. Why is it the second largest religion in the world yet the average American has limited if not any knowledge of this religion? It is sickening that those who claim to know the “true” Islam are actually the ones that have no conception of it, or in reality Christianity. I once had a discussion with a friend about Islam and I was...

“One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity,” the words of the last line of the first stanza of our national anthem. Sadly, I do no think ours is a nation where freedom abounds, and neither are we living (or have we ever lived) in peace and unity. At best we have only tolerated one another, each group of persons waiting for the perfect time to attack the other group, most times over issues that are both myopic and unreasonable. Over the years we keep chasing shadows, changing slogans (as...

JUBA, South Sudan 16, June 2014 – Every time I close my eyes, I can still see images of the gunmen shooting and killing people. It feels like it happened yesterday. I’m afraid of closing my eyes or going to sleep because I re-live those bad days. I have nightmares about what I saw and they make me scream at night. For a while, I thought I was the only one going through this, but sometimes I hear my brothers and sisters screaming too. The strange thing about these nightmares...
