Can we all imagine a world populated by this kind of human being! We could overcome poverty, mental health problems, and poor societies~ Our leaders would be good to learn the ways of men such as Paul Tudor Jones, and others of his ideals. We could create a world where all people are offered what each human being needs to develop into well balanced productive individuals. [teaching how to be fishermen & women!]
