We create our own world. In forging our own world, we have brought to life so many things we never wished for. Psychopaths,(people with real social disorders) do exist, but perhaps we also created them and we have the ability and power to unmake them. Perhaps, we turned people into psychopaths because we failed to show them love. As we did celebrate Halloween some few weeks back, we ought to also ponder on another day we should aim to take just as seriously – a day for love. I am...

We are humans, the pinnacle of creation as we know it. We are humans, thus we have humanity. Humanity is not something we create, nor acquire it from others. It is inborn and like a caged bird, always waiting to be freed and experienced by others. *Some of the images may be graphic.

Each and every day we seek to have a better world, a better society, a better generation, or a better family. Yet we fail to change our mindset about how we treat people around us, our environment and the ecosystem, and the organisms that exists around us. For us to get the best out of life and the environment, we have to make up our minds to change the way we react to basic issues in our life which have negative impact on others. A great American leader in the past once said "Ask not what your...

I want to dedicate this article for Nelson Mandela, a true leader that has inspired me in so many ways. On July, 18, 1918. A baby boy named Rolihlahla Mandela was born in Mvezo, a tiny village in the Transkei, a former British protectorate in South Africa. He then recalls growing up in the small village of Qunu. You may find “Rohilahla Mandela” unfamiliar, but yeah, I’m talking about Nelson Mandela, a statesman whose life and death inspire millions of people around the wo...

By Atiku Abubakar. Original source: http://atiku.org/aa/2014/01/01/never-take-unity-for-granted/ As we mark the centenary celebration of the amalgamation of the Lagos colony with the Northern and Southern Protectorates by the British Colonial occupier forming one country, Nigerians need to pat each other on the back. We have truly come a long way. We must redouble our efforts towards building a stronger and more united Nigeria rather than concentrating energies on division o...

Poetry is a powerful form of communication and expression. In fact, the very foundation of poetry is based on emotion and sentiment which seeks to make itself universal in its plight, understood by everyone. If there is one thing that every person in every generation can understand, it is war. I decided to use poetry to convey the thoughts of the greats about war. Enjoy! Nefarious War--Li Po (c. 750) Last year we fought by the head-stream of the So-Kan, This year we are fight...

Greetings, I am Hayagrish, a student of Lalaji Memorial Omega International School in Chennai, India and I would like to share my views on the importance of being a global citizen in this multicultural world. Every problem in the world, every global conflict whether it takes place hundreds of thousands of miles away, or right next door, is a global one. It’ll take a global effort with global citizens to stop them. We have a duty to protect each other as humans. It is time tha...

“So what’s a prostitute dude? What do you think?” This is the question I wish to ask to so many people at the same time. We are so much into assuming this word to be a slang that we just throw it at any random girl. Yes, it’s ridiculous but the truth. Can you really deny not having heard people, or your own friends actually calling another woman a ‘slut’ only because probably she has had pre marital sex or multiple sex partners or just moves on too quickly or does not...

The Earth is, surely, full of beauty; for everyone and from every perspective. This world, yet, is full of beauty for solely those who are able to commit to a peaceful lifestyle. Being able to detain such a peaceful lifestyle, despite all the negativities is another discussion which I am, sadly, not going to write about in this argument. Since, if we decided for elevating all the negativities in this article, it would surely go on with no end. As a consequence, this article is goin...
