What a wonderful world it COULD BE if:

hate was replaced with love
dishonesty with truth
indifference with compassion
dispair with hope
selfishness with caring/sharing
ignorance with knowledge
individual with community
sadness with joy
suffering with happiness
greed with moderation
evil with good

In a perfect world ...
