This year, women made great strides in career areas, world service and the global sector of humanity helping. Humanity helping? Making change! I really love this commercial that aired during the Golden Globes last weekend. I don't really have much else to say other than how wonderful it is. It features a song by Sara Bareilles called Brave. For your entertainment, I posted some of the lyrics below. Have fun with the video. And women, remember to be brave! Brave by Sara Bareille...

The 2014 Winter Olympic Games are just around the corner and Sochi, population 350,000, is eagerly awaiting the arrival of thousands of athletes from around the world. Amidst terrorist bombings and threats nearby, on account of Chechnyan rebel groups, Sochi faces great security challenges arising in the form of space, land availability, warm climate and safety from terrorist coups. Chechnya is to Russia what Tibet and Basque are to China and Spain respectively. Essentially, they ar...

The Pope has spoken about 2014. He calls for change, peace and unity across the planet. In my opinion, I believe the Pope to be as demanding as every other citizen of the Earth. Many skeptics thought 2013 was bad, unlucky even, because of the dreaded number 13. I think the bad quality of a year can only be attributed to the bad quality of the people who create it. And time is created by everyone! So, here's a proclamation to everyone saying that we should all get our heads out of t...

Father, Mother and Children. The ideal members of a little family. Let’s add Grandpa and Grandma, Uncle, Aunt, Cousins, Nephew and Niece for an awesome extended family. What a very great feeling for some people, who easily get the affection and care from their family and can experience it with a smile and little tears of joy. At the beginning of 2014, I was thinking that I sometimes forget about my family. It doesn’t mean that I forget about who they are or where they are,...

“Many, many people are stranded, scattered all over the place,” Mr. Atem said. “This is really devastating because we tried to go back and help this country. It’s really a sad situation.”

AWERIAL, South Sudan — When Jacob Atem was just a young boy, his parents were killed during the long war for independence from Sudan, and he found himself among the legions of orphaned children known as the Lost Boys wandering hundreds of miles across this part of Africa. Resettled and educated in the United States, he returned to the newly independent nation of South Sudan two years ago to open a clinic in the village where he was born. But the promise of this young country...

My Christmas gift came unexpectedly early. I happen to be a big fan of the sport of swimming. In December 2013, I participated in a swimming gala as a technical official. However, that gala was quite special. This is because the worlds greatest and fastest swimmer, particularly in the swim stroke known as (Fly) graced the gala. It was such an honour to be in Jason Dunford's presence. At that moment, I knew it was mandatory to kindly request for a photo with the legend and my...

Greetings: Dear youths all around the world, my warm greetings to you all. This is a subsequent post of my previous one titled ‘Youth for Change’ (Y4C). As I already mentioned, my idea and concept of Y4C is to inform, inspire and involve youths all around the world as agents of change in their communities through inter-disciplinary social development projects. I strongly believe that when we youths unite together we can bring a positive flow of transformation which in turn...

The other day, I was watching a segment on the program NBC Nightly News in which a journalist was speaking with young Syrian children. I was astonished for two reasons: first, they spoke English at a higher caliber than most natives of my own country and carried themselves with such poise greatly unexpected from children of their age; second, they spoke of the war and the concept of death as if it were mundane, something to which they were obligated to acclimatize themselves. It fr...

In the words of a youth who has never seen Nelson Mandela but lives of his sweat, and cherishes the ability to speak to a foreign ethnic group without being in handcuffs. I cherish the ability to walk weightless in industrial areas without documentation to identify my identity. Acknowledging my voice and the darkness of my skin, I live in a happy and relaxed society without tension. He wished for this life. Chanting his name and wearing his smile, I walk freely into all doors I wou...
