They have all left there mark on history. Today is no different. The two most devastating scenarios that are currently crippling the ability of civilizations to expand the human experience are both man made.

Where Are Yesterday's Hero's?
At a time so distant where ordinary men were called upon to do extraordinary things heroes were born. It was at the turn of the 20th century that Theodore Roosevelt rode into the history books.

The world that we used to know has suddenly and violently altered the lives and livelihoods of millions. The overwhelming failures of governments especially in the United States to deal effectively with the scourge of this pandemic and the unilateral failure to implement radical reforms to combat the catastrophic consequences of Global Warming have made our planet and every society become vulnerable to the most catastrophic environmental and economic disaster since the last Ice Age.
The Crisis Within
The years of inner turmoil have already begun. What many thought the first half of the 21st century would bring are now even more perplexed by the complexities of life today. Amid the inadequacies of government to deal with this rising continuation of the Covid-19 pandemic and the rush to administer a so-called vaccine to the whole population all have contributed to the ongoing catastrophe of this pandemic.
Pandemic Response Fiasco

All have been preoccupied with developing newer technologies especially in the field of medicine while ignoring the rudimentary procedures in vaccine development. Remember "that the events of today are the fruits of past decisions and our options for responses to them can be found in our predecessors. "
The Missing Pages Of American History Part IV
Throughout our brief history, the United States government has either subconsciously or not perpetuated a level of imbalances within our society. The consequences are profound. The inequality, the racial divides, and the level of corruption that has seeped into the very framework of our Democratic process have all succeeded in rendering our society almost incapable of bridging the enormous gaps of inequality in our nation today. In fact, any attempt to rectify the crisis we face has always created yet another crisis.
