ESSAY TOPIC: What would you like to see happen during this century to make the world a better place?

We Change the World

There are two things that I would like to see work together in tandem to make the world a better place during this century.  Those two things are schools world-wide working towards teaching the children of the world the importance of helping others, and by doing that lesson actually accomplishing the reachable goal ending world-wide poverty within the next 100 years.  Someone once said that, “The secret to eliminating poverty is to help someone to produce more than they need to simply survive.”  I am not really sure why this is kept as a “secret”?  The reality of this is that it really is not as difficult of…

EssayWhat will I like to see during this Century to make the World a Better place

Hallo So-travellers

Do you also see men to the left and men to the right? Are you part of the the NEW generation of peacemakers?

Who controls the wind?

Aaaa.....the beginning of inward Truth.

United we are stronger.

Neither female or male - inwardly.....

Think, pause and think again - are you for peace or for death.

Ps. (Freedom knows no bounds and it doesn't belong to any religion, corporation, government or individual). It serves and embrace us all.

You are obliged to respect It.

Stand against the drive to control and poison your mind with outdated reasoning that doesn't serve humanity as a united front against inward corruption on the global scale.

Real Peace and Truth be with you all as we approach 2015.

There is a vague effort underway to assert that such rights exist and are universal.One may prepare such a list of rights, but try and rank them in order of priority!I am rather fatigued by those who pontificate and then do not make their list.Here…Continue
