Dear PM Sir, Hope this letter from a random woman in your country brings you face to face with the reality of plight of Indian girls and women. For ‘being aware’ and ‘being in action’ are two different things! We celebrated the 70th year of Indian Independence this year. Today I feel Freedom is yet to be achieved. For I believe the women of India are still not free. As a young girl, in my teens, I remember celebrating Independence Day with full zeal and enthusiasm. I was proud of my country and countrymen. Feeling of pride is never taught; it is born within, for something or someone we feel is worth it. But today, as a mother, I feel ashamed and sorry for my daughter. ‘Ashamed’ because I am raising my daughter in a country where lust for skin does not seem to end! ‘Ashamed’ because...

The purpose of this open letter, however, is about cronyism in Rwanda. Case in point is the Kigali Convention Centre (KCC), financed by the...

My name is Tahkyia and this is an open letter to Conrad Murray, AEG, Sony and anyone who stood by and watched as Michael Jackson struggled and lost his life. Let me first start by telling you a little bit about me, seeing as how many Michael Jackson fans/supporters get categorized as being obsessed crazy people with no lives.

“Those who kill their own children and discriminate daily against them because of the colour of their skin; those who let the murderers of blacks remain free, protecting them, and furthermore punishing the black population because they demand their legitimate rights as free men — how can those who do this consider themselves guardians of freedom?” Ernesto “Che” Guevara, 1964 Why is this still true today? More than 50 years ago, this speech was made, and yet still, the same problem remains. Don’t let the media fool you. Don’t let the police fool you. I have heard many a statement which proposes “firm action soon”, and that this “problem cannot remain”. Nobody is doing anything about this. How many more black people are going to die before someone in power changes the law, or brings...

Lieber Dietmar Knöchelmann, es gab nur uns. WIr waren eine Einheit. Als Kinder waren wir, gerade mal 6 Jahre alt, gemeinsam im Spessart unterwegs. Wir haben den Wald geliebt. Deine und meine Eltern waren Freunde. Bis zu dem Tag als mein Vater starb, und meine Mutter Deinen Vater für seinen Tod verantwortlich machte. In der Tat war es unsere Schuld. Es war Deine idee den Schacht im Wald runterzuklettern. Es wahr eine alte verschlossene Miene. Du hattest sie gefunden, aber die kleine Stahltür wahr verschlossen. Trotzdem hast Du es irgendwie geschafft die Tür aufzumachen und bist eingestiegen. Du hattest noch nicht mal eine Taschenlampe. Es waren noch keine 2 Minuten bis ich Deine Hilferufe hörte. Ich rannte so schnell ich konnte in die naheliegende Kneipe. Es war Sonntag Morgen und...

To whom it may concern: This past week has been so disheartening and mind blowing. To live in this daily reality is too surreal. Growing up I would have never imagined I would witness so many catastrophic events and right now we are in yet another phase of turmoil. I'm not writing this letter to complain but to be a voice of a possible solution to begin the healing process of the reality's of all police brutalities. There are a lot of individuals speaking out in rage, anger, sadness, hopelessness and are in turn hit with political jargon that has yet to propose a possible solution leaving people to feel like their words are hitting a brick wall and that there is no one to give them hope that some type of justice will come out of all of this. Marching's, rallies, online post,...

Within the past month I've seen more violence then I would hope to see in a lifetime. Growing up I was taught to be kind to everyone no matter who they were. I never understood why one human would hate another human just because of what they looked like, or their religion, or their sexual orientation....To be honest I still do not understand. The amount of senseless murders I have seen in the past month has not only scared me but has made me angry. Imagine being in that persons shoes who is looking down a barrel of a gun just because he got pulled over for a burnt out tail light. Or all of the men and women who thought going out to a bar would be fun that night. I am a straight white girl, I am not a part of the handful of groups being targeted lately. No I do not understand...

When I was a little girl, my dad used to go away randomly. He’d disappear in the middle of the night, or a family member would show up to pick me up from school. My mom would be awake, even if it was the middle of the night, and she always seemed upset about something. She’d tell me “daddy’s at work, he’ll be home soon”, but she didn’t seem any less worried. As a little kid, I didn’t get it. I just knew my mom was upset, and my dad wasn’t home, and I didn’t like it. In High-school, my dad was super athletic. He didn’t get great grades - although later when he went to college in his 40’s he graduated top of his class. His parents never emphasized college, and he was more interested in sports. He played anything: football, soccer, basketball, if it included a ball it worked, and he was...
