Taking Care of the Environment The Current population of the United States is 311 million people. Consequently, the current world population is at 7 billion and counting. We’ve been hearing a lot about the car industry and the President’s affairs with GM but we should stop to think about the bigger picture for a moment---cars are just a single part of a much larger Earth. This Earth, one that we take for granted every day, has provided us with the necessities of life for ne...

I wrote a speech about Child Labor. I had the opportunity to deliver to a group of people about two years ago in a competition sponsored by the Rotary Club. Although prizes and medallions were far from the glitz of this serious event, I wanted to share with you all my speech. It is, perhaps, one of the most passionate addresses I've given, regardless of the text which lies so banally on this blank screen. Let me know what you think! Child Labor and the Never Ending Plague of...

Poetry is a powerful form of communication and expression. In fact, the very foundation of poetry is based on emotion and sentiment which seeks to make itself universal in its plight, understood by everyone. If there is one thing that every person in every generation can understand, it is war. I decided to use poetry to convey the thoughts of the greats about war. Enjoy! Nefarious War--Li Po (c. 750) Last year we fought by the head-stream of the So-Kan, This year we are fight...

Do you have what it takes to change the world? When I am asked this question, as a youth I say to myself - YES! I can make a change. Then I think about it over again. I had barely reasoned to an extent before I new I couldn't: I couldn't change the world, I couldn't affect the lives of the less, I couldn't do anything! "My thoughts are How will I say words that will touch the lives of the less? How will I act? What will I do? Who will I meet? These questions set me in conflict. Then it struck me...

Why is it only "Migrants" are treated so cruelly. I was really shocked to see people in such vulnerable conditions. It is a very sensitive issue that nearly 12000 people including children, women, elders have migrated from the north-eastern states just in search of a job and are exploited when they reach their destination. These people have no proper shelter, food, health and sanitation and not even basic education for their children, which are all considered to be basic "HUMAN RIG...

The Earth is, surely, full of beauty; for everyone and from every perspective. This world, yet, is full of beauty for solely those who are able to commit to a peaceful lifestyle. Being able to detain such a peaceful lifestyle, despite all the negativities is another discussion which I am, sadly, not going to write about in this argument. Since, if we decided for elevating all the negativities in this article, it would surely go on with no end. As a consequence, this article is goin...

Earth is a planet of prosperity and knowledge. It's been around since the dawn of mankind, and now we have reached the year 2014. We have reached our worse. The truth hides, and the lies are shown. Think about that. Freedom of knowledge and the freedom to protest. The big thing I want all of you to think are the problems and threats that our world faces. Imagine a world without fear, corruption, war, chaos, lies, poverty, or hunger. Think about that because our world has reached the complete opp...
