BLUE: The young soul sat on the beach; just some meters away from the crystal clear sea water. He could easily feel the warmth of the sand grains and admired the unique beauty the sun which was tucking itself elegantly into the majestic ocean. An elderly person, who stood beside him and perhaps his grandfather, asked him: “What are you looking at my dear?” “I’m not looking; I’m enjoying this beautiful world” he replied softly. “Tell me about it!” asked the e...


Hola amigos! :) First, I apologise for my 2 weeks of absence. I’m slowly getting back on track and feeling better! I’ll be honest - it was going to be my first retreat ever and the thing is, I was going there all alone and I hesitated to make it as I feared not being able to mingle and click with the youngsters there, finally find myself alone, home-sick and uncomfortable despite the promise of intense sharing. Clinging to that promise was my first step towards upcoming m...

To dream is human: In your mind, you are free. How human are you? Such as in your dreams? Every passing moment bears testimony of new goals being set; endless rays of hope and foreordained rejuvenation. In the profundity of such a dimension of reality, emerged an infinite ocean of ideas, twirling together to produce thought-provoking themes. Under this umbrella, the study of human choices and the re-questioning of conflicting philosophical ideologies cannot be isolated. Yet, ou...

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...

Rain is a quintessential element in life. It represents different things for each one of us. I tried writing this small poem by imagining its importance for different communities across the globe. Hope it is appreciated. RAIN: BLURRED YET SO REVEALING. Pouring down like a river; Whipping against my window fiercely; Making its way slowly yet so gently; Time to welcome it: Rain. Wiping away all chances for me to fall back asleep; Clutching my goose-fleshed arms ti...

What is mental health to you? What comes to mind when you hear mental health? Mental health is a very complex and often ignored topic amongst youth. The reality is young people also suffer from mental health issues. It's often put aside because the most common issue of mental health among teens and young adults is depression. Now, depression is a much bigger problem than it's said to be. Depression can lead to many things. Depression can be caused by a series of things,...

Often, I feel as though I can’t accomplish much- I’m not creative, I’m not a tech genius, and I’m not a brilliant writer… It feels as though I can’t do much! But even when we feel helpless and useless, unable to change the world or make our mark on the world, the truth is, every single one of us has immense potential to make a difference. How? As Albert Pike aptly summarized, “What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and i...


To be or not to be involved… That’s the debate.

Hello everyone, Latin America as you might know is a very violent region and delinquency is the signature to this sad issue, mafias, gangs, fiscal paradises, corruption, kidnapping, raping and forced evictions continue to frighten society towards placing new topics or fighting the ones that represent a high cost to development and security; however, great efforts are being made and huge change has already taken place. For example, the Peruvian fire-fighters department recently star...
