I am a student in an International Baccalaureate high school in the United States. In my IB Spanish class, we are currently discussing social relations (one of the core themes for the course) and their implications toward human rights. I find it funny, hysterical even, that people think human rights violations do not exist. Sure, if you are an innocent, little girl scout of age 9, I would expect no more from you; however, if you are of thinking (that is, lucid thought) age, you sho...

Empecé a ayudar a estudiantes en mi comunidad que son hijos e hijas de inmigrantes mexicanos. Usualmente sus familias son de México, pero también tenemos una gran mezcla de culturas entre guatemalteco y puertorriqueño. Sí, hablo español, pero tengo mucho interés en todos los lenguajes del mundo. Por eso, comencé a pensar “¿Qué haría yo si no tuviera las oportunidades para ir a la escuela y recibir una educación? ¿Cómo aprendería un lenguaje tan importante en nuestr...

100 years ago, the Panama Canal was opened for business linking two channels of trade for the first time ever in a more efficient and appropriate manner. The Panama Canal is a symbol of international relations, new age globalization, and the universal exchange of culture. Yes, a 48 mile long series of locks has the capability to impact us on such a level. The Panama Canal was not only an economic venture but also a symbol of the United States’ growing involvement with Latin A...

Le sénat français a adopté une nouvelle loi qui concerne l'’environnement, la loi d'avenir agricole. Dans un article dans le journal Le Monde, j’ai lu qu’il y avait beaucoup de lutte contre les actions gouvernementales et toutes les choses qui concernent les régulations. Je savais qu’il y a un grand mouvement « vert » en France pour améliorer la situation nationale de production, conservation, recyclage, etc., mais je ne savais pas que cette loi était dans l’agend...

There are two African-American women who have been on the arts radar recently--Misty Copeland and Keke Palmer. I've been following Keke Palmer since my parents introduced me to the movie Akeelah and the Bee seven years ago. She was refreshing and zesty with the right kind of sass. At the same time, she reminded me that an actress like her was an oddity in arts today. African-American, young, female and ambitious. A lethal combination of brains and beauty, Keke Palmer is taking Broa...

Tenemos un gran problema con la inmigración en los Estados Unidos. ¿Qué podemos hacer? ¿Bueno, qué debemos hacer? Los Estados Unidos es un gran país que fue establecido por los inmigrantes europeos. Sí, los indígenas estaban aquí, pero eso es una historia completamente diferente. Ahora, nuestro país consiste de un gobierno dominado por los “hombres viejos de descendencias europeas”. No estoy de acuerdo con eso. Pues, puedo protestar las injusticias; pero es mejor que...

Ebola—c’est un virus. Est-ce qu’il y a beaucoup de danger avec cette maladie ? Oui et non. Avec la crise africaine d’Ebola, tout le monde s’inquiète des risques, des symptômes, et des morts. Récemment, un médecin est arrivé aux États-Unis comme un patient qui a contracté l’Ebola. A ce moment-là, j’ai été très étonnée parce qu’il y a voyagé comme un participant d’un programme international d’aide pour le Libéria. Avant d'avoir pensé « Quelle ho...

How can we just sit around and do nothing? America, do something! President Obama, take action! Formerly, I supported our President with blind hopes thinking that he would revolutionize the way the Untied States has approached foreign policy since the atrocities of the 1960s and beyond. However, much to my chagrin and dismay (also, on behalf of the many citizens in this country who agree with me), the United States has yet to lift a finger concerning the conflict in the Middle East...

Poppies Humanity is a field of poppies. Tepid summers pluck seedlings and rest them in sodden plains. Each bursts roots thrusting into soil of eons past. Folding, bending, twisting and contorting… Running together like schoolchildren in the village None have foreseen the winter to come. Frigid winds strike with savage intentions. Acrid, adverse, and ablaze in spite… At first the seedlings hold together, but soon they desert one another. Spring arri...
