Do No Harm! Not to others, not to self, not to other beings, not to Planet Earth. Right now she's all we've got, and we people living on her are stuck with each other! It behooves all of us to grow up and love each other, even as we love ourselves. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Never forget that!
What Gives Me Hope
That there exist such venues like Care2 in which to express one's views and take action. Nothing ever happens when we sit silent and idle.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Eliminate greed, corruption, laziness, and predjudice; promote justice, truth, compassion, and equality for all, no matter what "group" they fall into. I would encourage everyone to help each other, to embrace each other in fellowship, and dispense with the hatred and bickering that is so polarizing today. I would promote separation of Church and State, and call out those whose self-serving agendas might put the general public in harm's way. We have the freedom to choose how we worship. I would promote clean, renewable energy and bring our jobs back home. Medicare for all citizens. Wage increases and price drops. The trickle-down Reaganomics has not worked for Main Street. Raise taxes on the top 2 percent, and cut taxes on the middle class. Restaurants don't toss out your unused food. Feed the hungry! There is so much to be fixed I don't know what the first thing would be! We all need to step up to the plate and do our part, and help one another.
What/who changed my life and why
A boy named "Steve", who gave me a book that set me on my life's spiritual journey when I was sixteen.
