Rebirth.  What does it mean to you?  For us at Rip magazine, rebirth also means evolution.  This issue is the rebirth of our new digital version of Rip magazine, an inspirational educational magazine for young people covering topics related to health, history, politics, economics and STEM, and offering inspirational messages, ideas, cartoons and art.

In many ways, humans are always evolving and giving birth to newer versions of themselves, their thinking and their belief systems.  Our goal is to help you learn, evolve, and perhaps think about ideas and beliefs in ways you have never thought about before in order to help you make better and more informed decisions about important aspects of your lives.

We understand that for many of our readers, the social and political climate of our country seems to be a bit wacky, and perhaps you are deciding which side of the discussion you are on, or maybe you already know your position.  For us at Rip, we say that sides don’t really matter.  What matters for us is how we behave on a daily basis and how our actions affect us, our families and the communities we touch.  

You may be also asking yourselves, what is right and what is wrong?  To this we say to measure your actions against love and kindness.  We believe that this is a good place to start evaluating how we are contributing to the various discussions surrounding us.

We welcome to hear from you.  We want to hear what makes you tick.  So come on and
