''' '' WORLD MEND 


STUDENTS HONOURS FORWARD : MANKIND AND ETERNITY WILL ALWAYS BE IN DEBT TO The Global Founder Framers of The World Students Society - for every subject in the world - :  Rabo, Darakshan, Haleema.

NOW, where the hell is Merium, Aqsa, Haider, Emaan [LUMS - Research], Saima? Probably overwhelmed as they begin to understand the world. The problems, no doubt, are daunting, but there are ways to be part of the solution.

ALSO - THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY STOPS - to thank Global Founders Vishnu and Lakshmi for ensuring that regular and sterling content is sent my way just about daily. Be assured that I read through and I thank you all, yet again.

NO RUSH. TO INTERFACE, I must think and consider some great student to take up the responsibility of reviewing and to plan heading '' The International Page '' on Sam Daily Times. In 360 evaluation,  one name stands out and tall.

I say, hello, to Shahryar Khan, Head Start schooling, BBA from America, extrovert, well settled and bright, outdoor lad, brimming with creative energy for higher work, just so lights up the mind. I intend to inform him, and when his consent arrives, The Global Founder Framers should review, decide and then confirm.
THE UNENDING PROBLEMS OF THE WORLD CAN FEEL SO DAUNTING : BUT for Mankind  and these ''great students of the world'' there are many, many ways to be part of the solution. 

In his poem ''Manifesto'' : The Mad Farmer Liberation Front,''  Wendell Berry calls his readers to ''Practice resurrection'' That's how I think of this stretch of ordinary but suffering times in our everyday lives. We must seek those things which bring renewal and repair.

There is much that needs mending. There are signs that most societies of the world are unwell, with polarization and sizzling under the surface of our discourse. The problems of the world feel just so big and overwhelming. And we can look to big things ro rescue us : national elections, a revolution, widespread revival, the apocalypse.

Of course, big things matter. Voting and federal policies are important.Yet most of us, in our limited spheres, must learn to embrace small practices of repair. These practices, though small, are profoundly significant. They are the tiny threads that weave a society where, as Dorothy Day said, it is easier for people to be good.

I'd like to offer a short, certainly not complete, list of small, ordinary ways to practise repair:

To love people, or even to tolerate them, it helps actually speak with them. This may look like small talk with neighbors or a long conversation with a friend where you look them in the eyes and ask them how they are doing.

It may be a family dinner or chatting with your barista while you wait for an order. All of this interaction, however profound, however fleeting, helps us connect with others in a way that cannot be replicated online but that form the very fabric of our lives and society.
The benefits of the outdoors are so great that fresh air almost seems like a magical elixir. Being outside boosts immune systems and lower stress levels. It also helps with anxiety. We are made to be creatures who spend a lot of time in the natural world, and doing so humanizes us in deeply necessary ways.

There is plenty to be upset about. There is plenty we need to protest and seek to change. There are important things to debate and address in our culture and society. But when a protest or conversation becomes unruly and vicious, certainly if it skews toward violence, then it contributes more heat than light to the world.

This is evident to most of us when it comes to in-person mobs. But the architecture of social media incentivizes vitriol and anger en masse. Tweets don't go viral because they are the most brilliant, helpful or accurate things being said. Multiple studies show that social media rewards emotional language and indignation.

Noting James Madison's warning that factions and fast-spreading outrage could sink the American experiment, Jonanthan Haidt and Tobias Rose-Stockwell wrote in The Atlantic, ''Social media turns many of our most politically engaged citizens into Madison's nightmare :

Arsonists who compete to create the most inflammatory posts and images, which they distribute across the country in an instant.''

Resisting the temptations to join an online pile-on is one step toward reknitting the social trust and political virtue necessary to sustaining a peaceful society.

While the Internet trains our brains to take in lots of small snatches of information, it makes engaging with long, complicated arguments more difficult. But the world is complex. In order to even attempt to understand it, we have to sit with slower, longer arguments, stories and ideas.

One lovely and effective way to retrain ourselves away from too-easy answers is to read books. In his book ''Stolen Focus,'' Johann Hari argues that reading long books cultivates empathy. It asks us to put ourselves in the place of the author, investing enough in someone's work to follow their argument or story to its end.

THIS EMPATHY is essential to a just and flourishing society.
