RidingRiding by Cassia Cassitas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The sky is beginning to turn dark.
Night is soon going to spread its wings to cover the globe.
A star has surfaced on the canvas of dark- then a second-then a third……
Soon there will be million zillion diamonds spreading the depth of the sky.
The mother asked her son-‘let’s have food.’
The innocent child asked his mother-‘where’s dad?’
Perhaps-thousand miles away- his father was looking at the same sky-at the same instant-perhaps thinking of his wife….perhaps thinking of his son….perhaps thinking something other.
That’s how the life flows!
Riding by Cassia Cassitas is a coming of age story of the dream and aspiration of a boy-a boy who has learnt the lessons of life from the nature, the people and from experience. The book itself is like a garland of story stories- every story blends some unique aroma of life and sewed together to form the symphony of life- life that always flows overcoming boulders, stones that comes into its way!

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?

Suleimani Is Dead, but Diplomacy Shouldn’t Be

Carnegie Council fellow and Pacific Delegate Philip Caruso advocates for the value of diplomacy in the aftermath of the U.S. killing Iran's general Qassem Suleimani. "Iran cannot win a war against the United States, nor can the United States afford to fight one," he argues.
