Being Thankful

UNITED STATES—There is something that I am learning about life each day. You have to be thankful for everything that you have because it can be taken away from you in a matter of a seconds. Sometimes in life we worry too much about the small things, things that shouldn't even matter. Why do we do these things as...

Marijuana Is Not All Good

UNITED STATES—For years there has been an ongoing debate on rather marijuana is a dangerous drug.

I’ve gone back and forth with this...

The Power Of A Good Speech

UNITED STATES—The power of public speaking is an art form itself, but even if you’re not the best public speaker, that doesn’t mean you’re not able to evoke powerful words to the nation.
