100 years ago, the Panama Canal was opened for business linking two channels of trade for the first time ever in a more efficient and appropriate manner. The Panama Canal is a symbol of international relations, new age globalization, and the universal exchange of culture. Yes, a 48 mile long series of locks has the capability to impact us on such a level. The Panama Canal was not only an economic venture but also a symbol of the United States’ growing involvement with Latin A...

To help others, it is not necessary to leave the country or go further away from where you live. There are places, community centers where you can make a difference in the smallest ways. In September, I will help people with reduced motor skills in Fatima. I decided to volunteer with a friend (The same friend who will go with me to Africa when we grow up). The good is to contribute to the happiness of others and I'm sure I'll love it. I think the smile of the people who are bei...

A place where the blossoms are bright A place where the land is not torn A place where my people are free A place where my children are born That is what my country should be. A land where the people are not silenced, with words like knives, or screams that pierce their heart A land where my friends and foes alike can live in harmony, A nation where my family does not live apart That is where my rights lie. A world full of love , a world ne'er strifed...

Hi! My name is Shradzy and I believe that everyone should be heard out. Firstly, (OBVIOUSLY) I think you can tell that I am the kind of person who will do a lot to achieve justice. The reason why I am writing this article is because I believe people should be heard out. Age. This thing we call 'age' is, in many ways, a global handicap. However, the only reason it is a handicap is because, we the people, make it one. Why should a child's voice be drowned out in the horde...

Dear VOY, Working with you has been a great journey. I honestly believe that you have made my life a more meaningful one by simply allowing me to write away my concerns on this forum. I have grown mentally and emotionally while reading what many of my peers have written from all over the world. I still cannot believe that I can share my opinion as openly and freely as I do beside my friends from Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, and beyond. I wish to commemorate my 1 year an...

We call it civilization or industrial revolution. The world is getting more and more complex each day and the same is moving at an alarming speed. The speed that tends to even overwhelm us, the people bringing up the changes. But still, we call it development. It is a good thing, I can't object. The world has to grow and lives have to improve. One thing we tend to forget is that the world is not developing at a uniform speed everywhere. In some places, mostly Africa and Asia, are a...

A child is born, a resource to our world; Her first thought is not the right vote; In her mother’s arms she’s curled; Her eyes full of hope. She cries because she is hungry; Her mother’s heart aches, For she has no food to give her; But it is that which she needs. A right to food, a right to a home, A right to feel safe, a right to roam; The world awaits her vote but she awaits a meal; It is that which the world must give her. Her mother’s love, a warm plate...

World Environment Day Environment is the sum total of what is around something or someone. It includes living things and natural forces. The environment of living things provide conditions for development and growth, as well as of danger and damage. It's everything that makes up our surroundings and affects our ability to live on the earth—the air we breathe, the water that covers most of the earth's surface, the plants and animals around us, and much more.

So I saw this picture on Twitter (@Fascinatingpics) and it just made me realise that daily I complain about my problems. The problems people like this face, are real. I realised how lucky I am. It made me think, what could I do to help the people of this world?
