Hi! My name is Shradzy and I believe that everyone should be heard out. Firstly, (OBVIOUSLY) I think you can tell that I am the kind of person who will do a lot to achieve justice. The reason why I am writing this article is because I believe people should be heard out. Age. This thing we call 'age' is, in many ways, a global handicap. However, the only reason it is a handicap is because, we the people, make it one. Why should a child's voice be drowned out in the horde...

Dear VOY, Working with you has been a great journey. I honestly believe that you have made my life a more meaningful one by simply allowing me to write away my concerns on this forum. I have grown mentally and emotionally while reading what many of my peers have written from all over the world. I still cannot believe that I can share my opinion as openly and freely as I do beside my friends from Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, and beyond. I wish to commemorate my 1 year an...

Solar energy, radiant light and heat from the sun, is harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar heating, solar photovoltaics, solar thermal electricity, solar architecture and artificial photosynthesis. Solar technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute solar energy. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors to har...

I found this music video and listened to it a few times and it just made me think. Many people in the world have identified the power and success women and girls and more continue to support women and girls rights. As much as I do not understand the words, but the song clearly has a happy message! We are strong :) ~ Women and girls, hear this and remember. We are strong, together we stand united. For education and other rights we will protest peacefully and use our soft...

The most marginalized children of the world can do much better and are better. All children, regardless of where and how they were born as well as what they were born with are entitled to survival, development, protection and care as well as a better standard of living and participation in governance and society. However, due to stigma, ignorance, neglect, superstition and communication barriers, these children find themselves isolated from the societies that they live in and...

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...

Before I begin my day/work, I just had to write this post. I want the world to read this! I am seriously questioning this world I live in now. I watched the news this morning and nothing was positive! This morning I have heard: - Indian slums being destroyed and no significant effort for those to be rehoused. - Helicopter crash - Weapons and war - Poverty and inequality - Effects of climate change - Injustice to our health - Homelessness in New York (2...
