 (Revised article)  "Did you hear? he disappeared at
1:30 a.m., the last night he was at work," informed my friend, one of
his colleagues. When I heard this news, I felt suffocated, as
though the earth had crumbled.

I remembered how he told me last month, "I can be proud only if I
get a chance to marry your friend."  He spoke as he lit a cigarette,

 I am walking alone on this road. It is raining lightly after a heavy shower. In the far distance, I can see cars' headlights. On this lonely and calm road, I am walking silently.

"Nights are generally fearful and dangerous. If possible, no one
should walk during the night," he used to say. Earlier, I did not care
about my father's words, but now I realize their importance.

My Friend Tested Positive For HIV

Author: 

She was an emotional individual. She called me on the phone and said, "I have now learnt to live with HIV". She has declared herself HIV positive and I cried all night.

I remember she told me last year. "Kamala, I like a good husband.".

I told her, "I want you to become happy and if there is anything that I could do, I would be happy. Anyway, your trust considering me capable enough of giving suggestions in your personal decisions, this truly means a lot to me". And then we became very good friends.

Economic system endeavor to provide jobs

A good economic system features selfish incentives for creative and hardworking people. It is a system where selfishness benefits both the producer and the consumer, since the latter is the final arbiter of what is sold, as "the consumer is king." Since a bad economic/political's economy will lack adequate incentives, its workers will not produce well.

Creating development means creating goods and services of greater value. So now we want to talk not about wealth creation, but about human rights and freedom.

If we study the history of development and poverty, we will find that Western farm surpluses are caused mostly by productivity improvements caused by advances in farm machinery and crop chemistry (fertilizers, pesticides, etc.).

For an example of how leaders can make all the difference in people's living conditions, there is no better example than Japan.

Promote law against gun violence (domestic terrorism).

Author: 

(revised article) We need to promote socio/economic education and values that emphasizeour identification, then the gun violence will diminish, in the long run. We need to promote sufficient economic, judicial and political equality and freedom. Therefore, the results of reducing gun violence and extremism are that when people engage in production and art and education (employment) rather than gun violence then the killing and maiming are reduced and people are more satisfied with freedom.

Violent groups and terrorism

Author: 

We know terrorists are targeting and killing small children. Children die by being "in the way" for the killing of adults by terrorists. From the news, it seems that lots of innocent people are in the way of the combatants or are deliberately targeted by violent groups. These include grown men and women as well as children, if they accompany parents. Like in Iraq or Afghanistan many children were targeted by terrorism, violence and war. Like when the violent groups kill children and innocent adults.

Women's economic growth is an essential

Author: 

On the abolition of women's poverty, the 20th century was the bad ever. Then why think that women development efforts will make it any better in the 21st or 22nd century? From all the evidence, Anti poverty Theory, the Declaration of Human Rights, have done something to prevent women's poverty to this date. We can continue making declarations and manifestos, we can continue sending bills to the government or Parliament, so women's development effort will continue. Also, we can hope to think that establishing women's empowerment will accomplish something.
