Tout finit par ce payer"

J'ai ecrit cette poésie pour mon texte fictif inspiré d'une vraie histoire pour demontrer la morale suivante, "Tout finit par ce payer"  

 

Le prénom, Ziad, nom? Pas besoin de savoir 

Certains me voient à l’école, d’autres à l’abreuvoir

Parler aux filles, c’etait comme de l’eau à boire  

Un jour je m’appellait Jean, un autre je m’appelle Edouard 

 

Plusieurs femmes m’aiment, grâce à mon sourire

Les émotions ne m’affecte pas, mais les cœurs je savais acquérir 

Sans mettre de l’effort, pour moi elles étaient prêtes à courir

The Reality of Rural Living and the Effects on the Education Systems

English

On Jan. 22, 2017, Kristin Rushowy wrote an article for the Toronto Star on a rural school in Ontario closing because there were not enough students to be able to stain the building itself. This occurrence is resulting in many families having to send their kids to another school, which happens to be a lot farther than the other school. Some children now have to travel about an hour and a half to get to school.

The Effects of Climate Change on Hockey

As more years go by, the future of hockey becomes more and more endangered due to global warming and climate change. Any professional hockey player will tell you that playing pond hockey and on outdoor rinks was critical to their achieving success. Climate change is slowly putting an end to outdoor hockey in the winter and some cities have already completely lost their ability to do so because they can't maintain solid ice long enough to be able to skate on it.

The World’s Largest Humanitarian Crisis

Written by Shuaib Almosawa, Ben Hubbard and Troy Griggs, the article ‘It’s a Slow Death’: the World’s Worst Humanitarian Crisis”, published in the New York Times on the 23rd of August 2017, sums up the deadly collateral consequences of a war that seems to be never ending. In Yemen, the war has been lasting since the past two years and a half. The two parties, one led by the Saudi coalition and supported militarily by the Americans, and the other one, the Houthis and their allies, both affirm that they will never give up until the other side does.

Volunteering with High School students

English

I went to my old High School to spend a day talking to secondary four and five students about themselves, and listen. The goal was to engage the students into thinking about what they want to do after High School. College, University, or go work. The reason why I wanted to talk to them is simply, because they are controlled by their teachers and parents. They have schedules from school to follow, and at home, but no time to think of what they want to do or what they really like. I conducted a series of activities for them to work and focus on their skills.
