High-Level Political Forum Report: 2

As meetings in the High-Level Political Forum continued, the United States’ strange behavior made it clear that they are not investing in the 2030 Agenda. In many of the meetings, the United States is a diplomatic outlier. In this conference aimed at international cooperation, they pick fights and remain notably quiet. There is no discussion […]

On Eliminating Traditional Gender Pronouns

A few days ago, as I dragged my feet to the gym after work, I began listening to the latest release of the New York Times podcast “The Argument,” which comes out with a new show once a week. The premise of the show alone—a conservative, a centrist, and a liberal discussing relevant politics—keeps the […]

The Importance of Mentorship

In this age of social media and the internet, it seems as if young people are suffering in a different way than any other generation ever has.

English Parliament Votes To Kill Irish Babies. Sound Familiar?

On Tuesday, in a stunning move–especially because both candidates for Conservative Party leadership, and thus, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom said they did not want it done–the parliament of the UK voted to legalize abortion in Northern Ireland. England has their abortion law, but since the Good Friday Agreement went into effect in […]

No, The Term “Concentration Camp” Should Not Be Retired, But The Culture Of Death Is Going To Wish It Were

Recently, Democratic Rep.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) called the comments “ludicrous.” The implication was that the term “concentration camp” be retired because of the […]

Just Like Me: Barbie and Inclusivity

I remember the thrill of playing pretend with a doll that looked “just like me.” Of course, I played with many different dolls, but the one I related to the most looked like myself.

Hosted in part by the Holy See, the meeting pulled no punches, beginning with the headline: “Good Parenting Builds Society: The Importance of Motherhood and Fatherhood.” While I’m sure that all kinds of good work is being […]
