It Happened on Our Watch - As Seen in a Commercial
Last edited 18th June 2015

In this commercial, anarchy, destruction, injustice, violence, and pure chaos are shown. And yet all the while our superhero, with the “bat phone” screeching in the background calling for help, is wholly distracted, flipping through the channels unaware that the world around him is descending right into Hell. He is turned inward, wholly focused on his own little world. Is this what we’re doing? Are we the superhero slouching on the couch as the world and Western culture descend into a maelstrom?

China Continues to Devour Its Own Children
Last edited 21st May 2015

This story concerns a married couple who each have one child with their previous spouses (it is unclear if the previous marriages ended due to divorce or death). According to the regulations set down by the Guizhou province where the woman in question, Qin Yi, works as a teacher, the couple are not allowed to have their own child. In the eyes of the province’s education bureau and the health and planning commission, their “one child” quota has been filled in their previous marriages. Thus, when it found out that Qin was five months pregnant, the commission ordered that she have an abortion by the end of the month.

As Violence Apirals, Salvadorans Look to Archbishop Romero as Example
Last edited 18th May 2015

If there's a place in need of salvation at this moment, it's this country named after Jesus Christ. Even as it gets ready to mark one of the biggest events in its history -- the May 23 beatification of slain archbishop Oscar Romero -- El Salvador, which in Spanish means "the savior," is in the midst of one of its most violent periods.

How Comparison is the Thief of Joy
Last edited 12th May 2015

Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.” Don’t get me wrong; I think a healthy amount of competition is a great thing in life. It pushes us to aim further and higher, learn and develop our skills, and combat brain-rot.
