What Gives Me Hope Young Activists
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Eliminate the clawback of the National Child Benefit Supplement in the province of Ontario, then I would resign.
What/who changed my life and why Man's Search for Meaning ... Although Frankl calls himself an existentialist, his is not the existentialism of despair of Sartre or Camus. Frankl is a scientist who believes that a valuable method of learning is to gather empirical knowledge from experience. He wholeheartedly embraces life and believes we can make our lives rich with meaning.

    Now that I finally took the time to peruse this site, I found out how to write a comment about Barbara!  I have never had the privilege to meet Barbara other than online and by telephone but I have to say she is one of the top ten people in my life who have been an inspiration, support and true friend.  I find Barbara to be caring to the point where she has let her own health suffer in order to help others.  She has probably less time than most people but never fails those who rely on her for guidance or a kind word.  This is one fabulous woman that I have been so privileged to know and one day I am going to make the trip to go and see her.  To be five minutes in her company would be the icing on the cake!  There are not many people that I admire so well but those I do place in the same category are as exceptional as Barbara!
