Have faith in our children to create a better world

Giving our children the tools to move the world forward is the most valuable investment we can make

Have faith in our children to create a better worldAmerican musician and songwriter Louis Armstrong wrote, “I hear babies cry. I watch them grow. They’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know.

Afghanistan has fallen to the Taliban. Do you care?Very few people have given a damn about Afghanistan for the last several years. It doesn’t impact their lives.

Communist dictator Xi Jinping showers praise on the 33 Senators who deny he is perpetrating genocide

Canadian Senate turns its back on genocide in XinjiangIf there was any doubt that foreign propaganda is influencing Canadian democracy, the defeat of a Senate motion to recognize the Uyghur genocide last month should remove it.
