“Before we can forgive one another, we have to understand one another” – Emma Goldman

Roughly five minutes ago I sealed the envelope encasing what I’m hoping is the last handwritten letter to my father. Handwritten letters seems like an alien concept to most people my age; in fact, I highly doubt 90% of my peers have actually written a letter to someone. Why would they? What with phones and…… Continue reading “Before we can forgive one another, we have to understand one another” – Emma Goldman

I see them run around the playground in their P.E kits competing in football…… Continue reading “Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages” – Thomas A. Edison

Growing up I always had a passion for learning. I thoroughly enjoyed school and extra reading, throwing myself into any material that could further extend my knowledge on a subject I found myself vested in. I learned to form strong opinions through this, and as any intelligent person knows, you need an abundance of knowledge…… Continue reading “I think documentaries are the greatest way to educate an entire generation” – Steven Spielberg

“Every generation witnesses atrocities” – Nas

As I enter adulthood I seem to be getting a lot of advice from other adults, primarily from the generation who raised mine, about what being an adult is like and how they coped and how I’m lucky because it’s easier for me now that it was for them way back when. Whilst I appreciate…… Continue reading “Every generation witnesses atrocities” – Nas
