I took an Environmental Science class last year. We learned that the general global populous of humans will not overshoot and plummet beneath its carrying capacity. Rather, we discovered that food production is not lacking and there is not a real shortage of food product in the world. If you think about it differently, you will see that this global dilemma of hunger is not a function of poor productivity or lack of resources. In the world, if we see it this way, we can assume that...

According to the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen (1789) and most nations, we are all citizens. Nevertheless, many human communities have been suffering the effect of a phenomenon called “statelessness”. The statelessness is little-known in everyday life by many of us, who live in developed countries, but in five continents this injustice occurs. The statelessness means that a person does not have any nationality, he/she does not belong to any country leg...

There are nearly 7.2 billion people on our planet. Isn't that shocking? As it is, I think most of us Generation Y's are feeling that we are running out of space. For what? I'm not exactly sure. In fact, space is no longer the issue. Rather, it is affordable, efficient and available health care. The international program, Doctors Without Borders, also known by its French name Médecins Sans Frontieres (pardon the lack of accent grave for any French readers), caught my eye in this re...

What is love? Are you walking in true love? Do you truly love your neighbour as yourself? So many things have been said about love, both those that truly reflect what true love is and those that do not but one thing I am convinced about is that love is the greatest of all and it conquers everything. I came across a piece written by Joel Osteen which really inspired me and has become a creed in my life. I have it pasted on my wall where I recite it every day. It has really boosted m...

How does it feel to walk barefoot, half naked with your eyes closed and all you can feel is your frozen bones. Down there you can't see, you can't talk... you can't be. The only thing you are able to do is to hear; to hear them talking, to hear them cursing at you and to hear them coldly laughing. Time has no meaning over there, whether it is morning or night it doesn't matter since all you can see and recognize is darkness. Imagine that they are torturing you everyday, invading ev...

"Have you seen my Childhood? I'm searching for that wonder in my youth Like pirates in adventurous dreams, Of conquest and kings on the throne..." Childhood - Michael Jackson I see that most of the writers here are between the ages of 18 to 23.

However, I am sad to discover that most children nowaday...

What did our class do for disaster relief? Our class, M205, decided to help those affected by the typhoon in the Philippines. We wanted help others and perform a service for the people from our school. We held a fundraiser called Backpack Express. Backpack Express was when we carried people's backpacks upstairs and delivered them to their classrooms. It was only 40 cents, and we raised over $700 over the course of four weeks. It was an amazing and inspiring experience and we all...
