Is the Lauri Love case showing Inequality in UK?

Many of you will only have yesterday learned about Lauri Love, however a rising number of people have been supporting him over the months as he has faced trial after trial in this matter. I suggest that given this case has been silent in mainstream media, we are seeing another measure of inequality in the UK.

Do You Have Fond Memories of the "First Time"?

Do You Have Fond Memories of the "First Time"?

First time experiences offer priceless memories, which often shape the person you are and guide you through life. Reflection of these situations allows us to improve our behaviours in the future, and affords us the opportunity to share with others for mutual benefit.

Often these memories can inspire us at times of low mood, or where our life takes an intersection; giving us the knowledge of how to manage difficulties or emotional changes. The sharing of these experiences is a brilliant learning tool for children and peers as they navigate their own lives.
