Only five steps towards the borderline and now only two are left to look through the barbed wires. His name is "Kid", he is only 10 years old, he is young but old enough to realize that the sky above his head is divided into two; where he stands is emptiness and there across the line is Home. Now they stopped calling him "Kid", since the day they crossed that line he became "Refugee". It's been two years now, he was only eight when he left his home. At first he couldn't understan...

The Syrian War: a time of despair for the people of Syria that began with a small protest. No one knew that this little protest would result into one of our time’s biggest issues, taking the lives of more than 100,000 people. Political issues have blinded the people of Syria, causing the destruction of the country. Violence has now gone berserk, endangering the lives and future of more than three million Syrian children. The children will not only suffer from physical pain, but t...

However, I am sad to discover that most children nowaday...

The other day, I was watching a segment on the program NBC Nightly News in which a journalist was speaking with young Syrian children. I was astonished for two reasons: first, they spoke English at a higher caliber than most natives of my own country and carried themselves with such poise greatly unexpected from children of their age; second, they spoke of the war and the concept of death as if it were mundane, something to which they were obligated to acclimatize themselves. It fr...

“Many, many people are stranded, scattered all over the place,” Mr. Atem said. “This is really devastating because we tried to go back and help this country. It’s really a sad situation.”

AWERIAL, South Sudan — When Jacob Atem was just a young boy, his parents were killed during the long war for independence from Sudan, and he found himself among the legions of orphaned children known as the Lost Boys wandering hundreds of miles across this part of Africa. Resettled and educated in the United States, he returned to the newly independent nation of South Sudan two years ago to open a clinic in the village where he was born. But the promise of this young country...

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...
