“We would have a lot less problem in the world if we talked to each other instead of about each other, if we tried to understand and be less quick to criticize.”
Aretha Franklin has died at the age of 76. The queen of soul who has been ill for a while, took a turn for the worst. She was reported days ago to be in hospice care. She passed away today after her long battle with pancreatic cancer. At the time of her passing she was surrounded by family and friends.
She had a great career and her music will continue to live on. Condolences to her family!

One of the most important step in empowering women is educating girls. It is imperative that they are given the chance to receive a good education. In some countries across the world millions of girls are denied the chance of getting an education. Many are forced into child labor and child marriages where they endure a life of servitude. This impact negatively on the quality of life for the girls involved.
Girls who are denied an education become women who are ill-equipped for the job market. They are denied the chance of equal opportunity in the workplace and are more likely to live a life of poverty.
