DADI Nanmua Alexis     Monday 17 March 2014   13:02  Mecca 
more awareness of this magnitude should be passed across through the various media available apart from the internet... I come from Nigeria and having access to a good broadband or WiFi is actually very hard irrespective of the telecoms and providers available. I know it might be cost effective but the results would be tremendous. I know a lot of Youths in my country need such a voice to voice out, creative, generative and imparting ideas that can help not only our shaking and corruptive economy but also the world at large and i''m quite sure so it is across the GLOBE. It''s high time the Youths speak out and in such a great magnitude not using constructive energy for violence and corruption

16   Love Al Jazeera
Sheldon     Monday 24 March 2014   04:13  Mecca 
I am a big fan of Al Jazeera. They cover news in a way that I have never seen before because Al Jazeera English speaks the voice of people of all nations, kindred, tounge, and tribe.
It is too bad however that I cannot join in this platform because I am above 35 years of age.
But as a teacher, I would love to make a contribution to helping young people make changes to the Arab society in making the Arab world a very livable place for all to coexists regarding our differences. The world has become a smaller place, and as the world gets smaller, it is the duty of our young people to make a contribution to make it safer, and the best way to make it safer is for everyone of us to learn and understand each other for our differences, and at the same time learn that we are al creted equal.
