The world we live in today is filled with viral videos, dabbing and Youtube challenges. However, this is accompanied with an endless list of social issues, trapping lots of people in a cocoon of negativity. Here are just a few to mention.
Every day, thousands of teens wake up afraid to go to school. This is a major dilemma because school itself is the foundation of childrens’ lives. An issue such as bullying must not be taken lightly.
Religion is a topic of controversy. Although it is a volatile subject, we need to come to terms It’s importance. Radical terrorism has struck fear into the world and a hatred towards certain ethnic groups. The world must not approach these groups with hate or with a cautious mind, because terrorists can come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Religion has also been used as base ground for segregation, which stands against what religion is all about.
Being in an environment which is surrounded by a range of different people with diverse cultures and traditions is a gift. It is not only humbling, but enlightening.
What we need to do
We have got to work together to eliminate these issues. Do not discriminate, do not hate, but love. Together we could make our world a better place.
