Times are difficult for many in the world today. We require much wisdom and patience to move humanity forward and stabilize the planet. The race for total control must stop.

Real peace initiatives in 2015 are compulsory for all of us. It will be achieved through small acts of kindness. More healthy food Monsanto and more sharing with other farmers too. More upliftment for the people of Africa.

Real love for the women and children of the planet. We demand leaders with hearts and conscions.

Less talking and more doing.

Why wait for another to come and do the real work? We are fully capable as a human family to do it ourselves.

The challenge is on and the clock is ticking from this moment. Will you be the difference the planet needs?

Thanks again Tindi. Agree to the long life for Global Ethics Network. Enjoy the rest of your day. Time to close eyes for some of us until it is daylight again. The sunset was beautiful on the beach. The moon is glowing white. It reflected the sunlight in the waves of the ocean. Many candles are burning as a symbol of a couple's love. Placed in paperbags on the seasand. We saw a Chinese latern flying high into the sky too until its light went out.

Ditto Tindi. And as Al always recommends to all of us: let it begins with us first. Thanks for sharing your view with the world. Carnegie is one of the most objective networks when it comes to changing society globally one post at a time. Sorry to hear of the ongoing suffering in Nigeria. Real peace in 2015 being made a high priority for this country and its people. Many tiny drops of water shape the sharp rocks. Thanks for being a tiny drop Tindi.

Such a nice work, Christina. Especially in a country like Nigeria, where everybody only cares about his or her family alone, where people dont care whether their actions lead to the deaths of others or not, there is always hatred, malice and backbiting. We have to inbibe the spirit of oneness, love and charity for our fellow man.

Thanks for your support Al. We can all work together in 2015 to promote goodwill and feed a stranger or neighbor. Please move past the unreconcilable differences for the sake of our survival and happiness. It is much more important than being right.

Christina: Thanks for creating and sharing !  Fully Agree, especially "......for all of us. It will be achieved through small acts of kindness."   Al

Prioritizing the Linkages Between Sustainable Development Goals to Eradicate Child Marriage

"Child marriage is both a cause and consequence of the other societal ills outlined in the UN's Sustainable Development Goals," writes human rights attorney Megan E. Corrado. This connection is especially stark in states like Afghanistan, which face instability due to conflict. What can governments and civil society do to help children in need? What are some grassroots approaches?
