Living with Differences: The Death of Diversity

While the term diversity continues to roll-off the tongues of many educators across the globe, the word diversity has become a mere buzzword. Presently, it is a theory awaiting realization… a centrifugal force projecting segregation rather than a celebration of difference. It’s breakdown ensues when the perceptions straddling the cultural boundary lines…

The hands

The hands is a capturing of a diversity. When looking at a country like South Africa one is able to see the progression through time. We once experienced Apartheid which affected the unity of different races and beliefs. Cutting the long story short we are creatives and regardless of what race you are,we are seen as equals. Taking it a step further because we are creatives we unite through creativity.…

As a result of poverty in Haiti, children at a very young age begin to help to bring food to the table. One of their most common tasks is to work on the fields. The hard work that they engage in, in my opinion, should not be considered as child labor for it is what keeps them alive. Consequently, they do not have the time or the means to get an education. This…

Living with Differences

In the summer of 2012, my Canadian friend and I fundraised 5620 USD and biked through the Himalayas, from Tibet to Nepal. Along the way, we used the money we raised to buy school supplies for impoverished schools. On the trip, I encountered some of the most kindhearted people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. There were Tibetan ladies at stationery stores…

According to Rosin, women undertake the non-traditional roles of men in the work-force and as the dominant force at the homestead... jostling the tipping-point of the equity scale in the favor of…

A Parting of Values: America First versus Transactionalism

"The existing divide in American foreign policy discourse has been the extent to which the U.S. must actively propagate and spread its values, or defend them or promote them even when there is no interest at stake," writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. How does American civil society demand consideration of moral and ethical concerns in the decisions both to go to war and how the war will be prosecuted?
