Bonjour! :) I have been quite busy physically, morally and psychologically with numerous events occurring in my life lately. I have read, witnessed, realised, wondered, thought, learnt and done a lot. I realise that my life is, indeed, a wealthy one in its own way and I give thanks for everything Life gives to me. Furthermore, what is going on in my country really strikes me and I feel it’s time to start speaking up. As my piece got too lengthy, I decided to write it into two par...

A child is born, a resource to our world; Her first thought is not the right vote; In her mother’s arms she’s curled; Her eyes full of hope. She cries because she is hungry; Her mother’s heart aches, For she has no food to give her; But it is that which she needs. A right to food, a right to a home, A right to feel safe, a right to roam; The world awaits her vote but she awaits a meal; It is that which the world must give her. Her mother’s love, a warm plate...

Every child is born with the right to education. Education is the most important aspect in every child's life. It prevents them from getting their dreams crushed. Because if their dreams are crushed, their mental and physical abilities will go down. Every child living in any country has the sole right of getting an education. Detaining children in the streets just because of the color of their skin, caste or religion is just wrong and is against the law. The constitution is there t...

The natural causes of climate change is addressed by a layer which protects us from the harmful rays of the sun; this protective layer is called the ozone layer. But the activities undert...

Rumor has it that people around me have been talking about the fact that I am, (from their perspective) ambitious- looking. I participated in plenty of competitions and achievements a lot, and I cannot live more than 2 months without actively participating in an event or competition. As an ignorant person, I do not want to really stress over the fact that they are calling me ambitious or that they are talking about me behind my back, because, hey, it is obviously beneficial for me....
