After the end of World War 2, one thing was very apparent: the Nazis had to pay for the war crimes that they had committed. The crackdown on the Axis powers and their war crimes through mass trials would eventually come to be known as the Nuremberg Trials.

Most of them were given the death sentence or life imprisonment. …

Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, or Mother Teresa as she is now known throughout the world, was one of the most important Catholic Church figures when she was alive and even posthumously. Someone who Christians and everyone alike admired, she is best known for her work in uplifting poverty and helping the marginalized in the poorest regions of Calcutta, India. Her trophy cabinet is filled with multiple awards that ranged from the Ramon Magsaysay Peace Prize to the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979, cementing her legacy as someone who worked solely for the welfare of those suffering.

World War II is considered by far as the incident that single-handedly changed how modern history was going to unfold after its end in 1945. From the advancements in aerial war machines to the creation of the deadliest weapon in humanity’s history, the atomic bomb, there was one thing that was certain in this great war: despair and destruction.

Perhaps the saddest part about it was the mass genocide of the Jews committed by the Nazi regime under Adolf Hitler. …

The concept of prisons is often subject to a lot of criticism in the modern world. Intellectuals argue about the benefits of incarceration and believe that merely locking away criminals in a box is not a viable solution, since prisons do not reform a person.

The conditions in most prisons are so bad that after being physically and mentally tortured by guards and other inmates, prisoners become psychologically unhinged and are either too broken to rejoin normal society or become even more determined to continue their criminal path when they leave jail.

It is not every day that death row…

The only thing the world really knows him for is his face on…

The mysteries of mother nature are impossible to understand. It gifts and curses according to its own whims and desires, and puny humans have no say in its matters.

We are thrown, at random, into a body at birth, that we have to live out our days in. It is neither fair nor justifiable that one person is born with a perfect genetic composition into a rich family, while someone else is born with multiple hereditary diseases into a poor family. That, however, is life, and there is nothing that can be done about it.

We only need to look…
