BOOM! The building is falling, surrounded by fire. You don't know where to go, you think about your family but the whole city is on fire, and there's no saving them. No last goodbyes, No I love you's. Nothing! Just a painful, fearful death. Your kids might be wondering, "Why isn't dad here to save us?" But you are too far to even see them for the last time. And you'll think "What did I do to deserve a death like this?" I can't imagine myself in that situation, and neither can y...

It’s estimated that nearly 125 million girls and women have been subjected to this violation, and each year a further 3 million are at risk in Africa alone. Most people understand that female circumcisio...

@MariaJoseCelis wrote “Do one thing: volunteer” in her article ( http://www.voicesofyouth.org/en/posts/do-one-thing--v..- ). After reading this I decided to tell about my own experience.

Due to Wikipedia special needs “is a term used in clinical diagnostic and functional development to describe individuals who require assistance for disabilities that may be medical, mental, or psychological.”. Thus those are people with Down s...

For example, the Peruvian fire-fighters department recently star...

Two Lives/Two Miles Apart One of the main problems in Hong Kong is the massive wealth gap that exists between the rich and the poor. As it is an international financial centre, Hong Kong is the home of Asia’s richest man (Li Ka Shing), and a surging number of millionaires. A recent statistic shows that one in every 38 people in Hong Kong is a US millionaire. Glancing at Hong Kong’s towering skyline, modern buildings, high class shopping centres, and technological developmen...
