The first time I heard and read about John F. Kennedy, I almost thought he was a god! I thought he was a phenomenon, a being supreme and very determined. I saw one great trait in him that made my heart tremble - his voice. He never kept QUIET. His ability to relate to the poor and rich, making them understand the purpose and rhythm of how good living should be was overwhelming. Indeed, his voice was more great and touching. I feel the same about Martin Luther King Jr. - a man who spoke out with...

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.

And time is created by everyone! So, here's a proclamation to everyone saying that we should all get our heads out of t...

“I was often sick, and we used to go to hospital with my granny. When my mother died, granny left the doctor’s office crying. I was thinking to myself, what could afflict her so much? She then told me about my HIV status and that I would constantly have to take medicine.” 15 year old Liza, from the Ukraine, may have been diagnosed with HIV at a young age, but that does not stop her. Liza is a well-known civic activist not only in her home country, but abroad. She openly t...

The trash that can be invested is dry-trash or inorganic trash. The trash that you give will be weighted and you will get the money depends on the weight of your trash. The principal of this schoo...
