How do you console a child who has become a victim of war? How does one console a child who has lost almost everything - from her parents, friends,home, limbs etc. in a war that she understands nothing about? It is heart breaking to see children as young as one month wail helplessly in Gaza hospitals with injuries incurred after someone threw a missile to them. It is even choking to see a lifeless body of a child who can't defend himself or herself lay by the roadside or in...

Traumatised by the daily display on our news-screens I took it upon myself to do the only thing I knew I had the power to do, which is to voice my opinion. Last night, the video portraying a young boy lying lifeless on a hospital bed in Gaza, the doctors opening his limp lids to pupils fixed and dilated, was deeply disturbing. This image will forever be implanted in by mind and never forgotten, but we individuals can stop this in its footsteps. This is an article prompted by that i...

Children of Gaza strip must be asking their mothers,'Who are trying to kill us? Palestine? Israel? Egypt?' but simply the answer is 'Humans killing humans'. For just a stupid political reason, around 1800 people are already dead and more than 9500 are wounded. Israel is killing Palestinians but why don't they see that they are 'humans' more than just a 'Palestinian'. Why is Israel continuing its assault even after they know that innocent people are being killed? Just because Isra...

Youths should be instruments of change not tools of anarchy. You know what fascinates me about we the youths- when we stand for something we believe in. No wall is too high, no restriction can contain us. We stand to face the world for what we believe in..choose to stand for a great cause..say NO to Child trafficking, NO to Early marriages, No to Child soldiers..No to poverty caused by war..and No to any forms of torture and abuse against the Child!! You see, one person can't ..a single country...

...there is nothing much I can do to change my situation but our leaders can do something. They can decide on whether to destroy our future or build the future of this country by investing in the children...

Before I begun my day, on impulse I checked twitter. I saw a tweet from VOY that said If you only read one thing today, make sure it is this: http://t.co/nzUkgvAZBS">http://t.co/nzUkgvAZBS">http://t.co/nzUkgvAZBS - a testimony from a 12 yr old from South Sudan. — Voices of Youth (@voicesofyouth), June 19, 2014 So I clicked the link to read the story, a horror story from a 12 year old caught up in two worlds. The story really hit my soul. What makes this w...

The Sunni-Shiite split happened c. 650 C.E. In the religion of Islam, it carries great political and theological weight. Historically, Islamic states (e.g. Arabia, Persia, Ottoman Empire, Mughal India, etc.) have always lent themselves to be theocratic. The first state leaders who emerged from the birth of Islam c. 600s CE were the Caliphs. Over the next one thousand years, the world would see various Sheikhs, Sultans and Khans all vie for power in the culturally flourishing part o...

They killed forty eight men one night ago. They came in to the town, took out a police station, demobilized them and then proceeded to shoot at everything male in their path. They shot them and left their bodies lying in the dark to be collected and disposed. They didn't care; shot at close range and left them for dead. They killed forty eight people in less than four hours. Sadly this is not a one time only incident, there is more... A well executed shoot to kill attack in a h...

As many expected and predicted, the resolution against Sri Lanka was adopted by a majority vote at the Commission that is for Human Rights of the Nations who Stand United. Any thought on ignoring its impact is officially a goner. They will watch us. That’s what Navi Pillay says. So our people have one question now; why did they do this to us? Well I for one have a different set of questions; how did our post-war diplomacy fair? Did we get the mix right? And if we did, why did we fail? I have...
