Founder at Ghion Journal
Teodrose Fikre is a published author and a prolific writer whose speech idea was incorporated into Barack Obama's south Carolina victory speech in 2008. Once thoroughly entangled in politics and a partisan loyalist, a mugging by way of reality shed political blinders from Teodore's eyes and led him on a journey to fight for universal justice.

Teodrose was born in Ethiopia the same year Emperor Haile Selassie was deposed by the communist Derg junta. The great grandson five generations removed of Atse (emperor) Tewodros Kassa II, the greatest king of Ethiopia, Teodrose is clearly influenced by the history and his connection to Ethiopia. Through his experiences growing up as first generation refugee in America, Teodrose writes poignantly about the universal experiences of joys, pains and a hope for a better tomorrow that binds all of humanity.

Teodrose has written extensively about the intersection of politics, economic policies, identity, and history. He is the author of "Serendipity's Trace" and newly released "Soul to Soil", two works that inspect the ways we are dissected as a people and shows how we can overcome injustice through the inclusive vision of togetherness.

One of the main reasons a decision was made to launch the Ghion Journal was to empower localities. The change we want can only come from the people; Ghion Journal has the faith to believe that we can make a difference in our communities instead of having decisions dictated to us by elites who don’t

My grandparent’s generation in Ethiopia had a holocaust committed against them by Mussolini’s fascist military. Mustard gas was deployed against civilians and resistance fighters alike as men, women and children were bombed indiscriminately. The horrors of seeing children melt before their eyes as chemical weapons burn through skin to the bone became a normal facet

It all makes so much sense now. I look back to the times when I used to advocate for exclusionary justice and realize just how brilliant the system of divide and conquer really is. With the benefit of hindsight, I see now that the media personalities I used to admire as truth telling heroes are

This is an open letter to journalists, pundits and media personalities who chose to pursue journalism as a profession. This is your conscience speaking to the inner idealist that once sparked your interest in the fourth estate. This memorandum is also aimed at the consumers of news that is being injected into the public arena.

I write this article to speak against the antagonism and dissension that is being stirred up by the marches taking place in Charlottesville, Virginia. But I am not taking umbrage

Let me admit, I grow weary of hearing gripes and grievances. I don’t say this to somehow deny atrocities that have been committed against people in the past nor am I blind to injustices that continue to be perpetuated in the present. Yet there is a big difference between discussing historical wounds with the intention

I was all set to write about the newest Donald Trump shenanigan or the latest Democratic duplicity. But then a moment of clarity hit me.

Over the past week, I was bracketed by two conversations which had the most profound impact on my outlook. For too long, I cynically joined the crowd in blaming the younger generation for being apathetic and casting aspersions their way for incessantly complaining. But after talking to an Ethiopian elder and then hearing a rousing speech
