The damage done by the former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to the Tamils in North-East Sri Lanka
There is evidence that the UN staff in Colombo repeatedly contacted Ban Ki-moon and asked him to come to Sri Lanka to prevent what was certainly going to be a bloodbath. Ban said that he would come only of he could do something about it.

(BRISBANE) In the 70 year history of the United Nations, there has not been a Secretary General worse than Ban Ki-moon. The UN Office of Internal Oversight Services said that the UN Secretariat under Ban Ki-moon was “drifting into irrelevance” He has damaged the standing of the UN so much that Richard Gowan, a UN expert at the European Council on Foreign Relations believes that Antonio Guterres, who succeeded Ban Ki-moon on 1 January 2017, “could give the UN the kick up the backside it needs”. Under him, the UN has become a joke, not to be taken seriously, and very different to what the UN was expected to do when it was formed.

(MYRTLE BEACH) Someone may want to inform Senator Claire McCaskill that her recent call for an investigation into the prescription opioid epidemic was already launched by the U.S. Finance Committee in 2012 and as of 2017 there is still no report. So why would McCaskill demand action on an epidemic killing in the thousands every year when she is aware the waters are not unchartered? Let me try to enlighten those people, including McCaskill, why not everyone is buying what she is selling.

I believe music heals the soul. While it’s no new philosophy, it’s more true today than ever. Alcohol and drug addiction is killing people across our nation and artistic approaches hold a bigger bounty than any traditional means.
The power that alcohol and drugs hold over people is a force to be reckoned with. We should never forget that we are surrounded by former users and recovering addicts. We should fight that power so that people may have a chance to live life to the fullest. It isn’t too late if you are reading this.
