The world in general is in perilous times. With economies fast declining, political and religious unrest, educational and moral decadence plaguing societies, how can we find peace in the midst of all these?

We want to see the written word about what it feels like to be alive in this times. Most importantly, we want stories of hope, of assurance that there’s always peace after every raging storm. But how can we get to the light at the end of the tunnel?
