I have noticed some strange happenings as of late, and I am not sure if the problem is a result of the pressure our society places upon us, or whether it has been around for a long time, but I have noticed it is difficult for people to achieve happiness in their lives without having to endure constant ridicule by their peers.

Why can’t people just be happy for one another?

When we were young we shared the heart of a kitten.

Chasing those balls of yarn,

watching them as they rolled towards the horizon

where we thought we would chase them forever.

I was naïve in those days.

I did not yet realize

that our hearts didn’t beat to the same rhythm.

As we grew older, your heart remained unchanged.

Holding onto those dark days of your past

with a bitter remembrance.

After the recent shooting of a broadcast journalist and a photographer there seems to be an increased concern about gun control in the United States. 

The United States has recently seen a pandemic of gun shootings with shootings in theatres, streets, and now on live tv.

The argument over gun control is obviously heated and multifaceted. People can be seen saying that guns don't kill people; humans do. Proponents of gun control claim that guns are being placed in the hands of unstable people. Opponents claim that the killers would merely find another way to inflict damage.

Whatever the truth may be, people seem divided about the solution. People seem to be looking at this topic as an important topic in this upcoming election.

Feminism is a hot topic in the news lately. With Emma Watson's speech at the United Nations and then her "He for She campaign," and then with the recent video entitled "Why I'm not a Feminist," feminism has become a hot topic.

When this video went viral, people automatically responded showing that her stats were wrong and in outrage to her video. However, at the same time, some people seemed to cheer the video.

This has shown that there is in fact a heated battle about what it means to be a feminist and whether there is a place for feminism within the United States and Canada.

There seems to be a break between what people think feminism is and what it is.

Most feminists claim that feminism is not the extremist approach that people seem to think it is. However, others claim that it is the extremists who define the group.

Today is ‘No Bra’ day. This is to increase the awareness of breast cancer among people. This is (no bra) also a part of the ‘sexual revolution’ in the US, which started a long time ago. And we are still going through that sexual revolution phase and faraway from establishing feminism. It’s sad how we treat women. Perhaps it has reached its peak because of Trump. We really owe this to Trump for bringing so many things on the surface. I have been saying this since Trump is in the limelight that Trump may not be fit to be the POTUS, but sure having a tremendous impact on our society.
