Earth is a planet of prosperity and knowledge. It's been around since the dawn of mankind, and now we have reached the year 2014. We have reached our worse. The truth hides, and the lies are shown. Think about that. Freedom of knowledge and the freedom to protest. The big thing I want all of you to think are the problems and threats that our world faces. Imagine a world without fear, corruption, war, chaos, lies, poverty, or hunger. Think about that because our world has reached the complete opp...

Imagine a world without girls. A world occupied by arrogant and naïve men. Imagine you have no mother to talk to when you are hurt or a girl to call a sister. Imagine a world where men give birth to boys and imagine a world where girls are extinct. Now, picture yourself close to the only girl in the world - What do you think she deserves? If your thoughts are positive towards life, then that's how every girl child should be treated, catered for and nurtured. Girls have come to stay, and women a...

In South Africa, music is and always has been a form of escape for most of the young people, especially those from disadvantaged communities, from the harsh realities of the lives that they are living and it is through music that most of the young South Africans are able to realize their dreams live their passions. Here is an example of a young man whose life has been difficult and has used music as an inspiration to realize his dreams and inspire other young South Africans.

“The road is blocked. You cannot go any further, please come through the other way,” a 7-year old child declared solemnly. “But I have to drop off my daughter. She is going to be late for her office. Please let us pass!” my father requested. “No, Sir!” this time another child spoke, and sounded like they were coming-of-age. “Can you please look at my card?” my father handed out his service card. “Hmm…”, the first child began to check. After he was satisfied, h...

The other day I was taking a personality quiz on TIME, in which the results would indicate my political stance. Some of the questions seemed quite random (ex. do you prefer dogs to cats?), but generally the results came back pretty accurate. One of the questions in particular caused me to pause. It stated "you are proud of your country's history" and then followed with a number of choices ranging from "strongly agree" to "strongly disagree." I stared at the question for a while,...

Should we have to live in fear of the government? Should children grow up in a society which represses their rights to free speech? Of course not! Government's job, by definition, is to protect and preserve the rights of its citizens. Recently, Edward Snowden, the supposed "whistleblower" was nominated by Norwegian lawmakers for the Nobel Peace Prize. Suddenly, the whole world starts freaking out saying things that fall into one extreme or the other. You have on one hand people say...

This year, women made great strides in career areas, world service and the global sector of humanity helping. Humanity helping? Making change! I really love this commercial that aired during the Golden Globes last weekend. I don't really have much else to say other than how wonderful it is. It features a song by Sara Bareilles called Brave. For your entertainment, I posted some of the lyrics below. Have fun with the video. And women, remember to be brave! Brave by Sara Bareille...

The 2014 Winter Olympic Games are just around the corner and Sochi, population 350,000, is eagerly awaiting the arrival of thousands of athletes from around the world. Amidst terrorist bombings and threats nearby, on account of Chechnyan rebel groups, Sochi faces great security challenges arising in the form of space, land availability, warm climate and safety from terrorist coups. Chechnya is to Russia what Tibet and Basque are to China and Spain respectively. Essentially, they ar...

The Pope has spoken about 2014. He calls for change, peace and unity across the planet. In my opinion, I believe the Pope to be as demanding as every other citizen of the Earth. Many skeptics thought 2013 was bad, unlucky even, because of the dreaded number 13. I think the bad quality of a year can only be attributed to the bad quality of the people who create it. And time is created by everyone! So, here's a proclamation to everyone saying that we should all get our heads out of t...
