This week im doing something a bit different, I'm going to write a poem, I decided to write a poem because I see a lot of articles and thought this would be contrasting. Is smoking fair? You light a cigarette And your lungs cry out Is smoking fair? You breathe in the cigarette While her parents cry out She's hooked up to a breathing machine Is smoking fair? You exhale the smoke She struggles She cant breathe Her lungs collap...

Do the youths really know about money? We all know the definition of money as a medium of exchange or a legal tender for buying and selling. We all want to make a lot of money, youths are known with having many ideas bubbling within them, but it seems implementation is impossible because of lack of funds. For lack and insufficiency to be reduced and perhaps eradicated especially among the youths, there is an urgent need to understand some things we can do with money. These...

Humanity! Ubuntu! Bantu!anthu!abantu! All but words that have the same meaning in linguistic nature. Humanity! A symbol that once kept Africa united and saw people come together to fight a common era. Ubuntu! We came from all corners of the diaspora and fought a common era - slavery. Colour was not a definitive picture for there was no black, coloured , Indian, Hutu, Nsenga, Bemba, Tswana, Yoruba, Xhosa, Ngoni and all nativity but we were one Africa bound together in love...

I recently read "I am the Messenger" by Markus Zusak, and found it an engaging and poignant book. “I am the Messenger”, written by Markus Zusak (author of “The Book Thief”), tells the tale of a drifting and listless teenager, Ed Kennedy. At first glance, Ed appears to be a complete loser. An underage cabdriver with not much of a future ahead of him, Ed spends most of his leisure time playing poker and pining helplessly over his best friend Audrey, who doesn’t even belie...

Hi everyone! Current societies run faster than ever, that´s why new things are more desired and younger people have earned renewed appreciation because features of ourselves and our surroundings seem to change at the speed of sound. One thing that comes out of it as a beneficial fact is that younger people are now hugely recognized as subject of law but also seen no longer as just "the future" but also the present A way to illustrate this is by looking at how children and yo...

BLUE: The young soul sat on the beach; just some meters away from the crystal clear sea water. He could easily feel the warmth of the sand grains and admired the unique beauty the sun which was tucking itself elegantly into the majestic ocean. An elderly person, who stood beside him and perhaps his grandfather, asked him: “What are you looking at my dear?” “I’m not looking; I’m enjoying this beautiful world” he replied softly. “Tell me about it!” asked the e...


Hola amigos! :) First, I apologise for my 2 weeks of absence. I’m slowly getting back on track and feeling better! I’ll be honest - it was going to be my first retreat ever and the thing is, I was going there all alone and I hesitated to make it as I feared not being able to mingle and click with the youngsters there, finally find myself alone, home-sick and uncomfortable despite the promise of intense sharing. Clinging to that promise was my first step towards upcoming m...
