Everybody learns about wars in their history classes. The basics include: who fought, what was the cause, and who won? But do we teach children about the real information behind wars? Do we teach our kids that during wars, millions of people may die just by being caught in the crossfire or that servant citizens by the hundreds of thousands may have lost their lives on the battlefield? Why do we speak of wars with such reverence and pride that we have forgotten what the real objecti...

There are many poor, sick, underprivileged people in the world. Of course, all of us can say that we knew that. We can say that we saw it on the news one day or that our history teacher was discussing some vague issue in some ambiguous manner with us; but what are we doing about it? Poverty and suffering have a very obvious correlation that we can link with a slew of statistics and data. However, I'm not here to give you that litany of things. I'm here to do and help you do what...

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...

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...

The American government has shut down. After this past week's events and our bicameral legislature falling apart, American civilians are looking for a shining light ahead. In 1776, our founding fathers drafted a constitution to create a representative democracy. In this sense, Americans have had rights and regulations around them for centuries, it's part of this democratic culture. I am all for democracy, I mean I am perhaps the biggest advocate for democracy out there. Although...

Who brings the news to civilians in Syria? In the United States, we have the liberty of free press. Our news is so accessible we have a 24-hour news network. There are written sources, connections on social media, and endless television broadcasts. However, in more impoverished or politically restricted countries, journalism is restrained heavily. While speaking to the US Director of Reporters without Borders (or Reporters Sans Frontières - RSF), I learned a few things about the p...

Recently, I went through something that was pretty revelatory. I mean, I never understood why some things in terms of global issue prioritization made it first/ over Education. In my opinion, I always thought and always will think that Education comes first. Then, one of my close family members told me that education would rarely ever benefit anyone if they could not go to school because they were too sick. Upon asking the reasons for whatever illness they had acquired, I realized...

All over the world, millions of young boys and girls are unable to get proper education. In countries like India, Nepal, Colombia and various parts of Africa, girls are often married off and boys are forced to work on the streets to earn a living for their family. Resources like clean water, food and shelter are perhaps not even available, however we must consider the premium of education. The key to ending the global chain, that perpetuates itself and has done so for centuries, is...
