Folk are so afraid of anyone or anything that might upset their feeling of security that they tend to shy away from making contact with others of a different race, colour or creed.

I know everyone here is contributing in their own way to the Peace of the planet. I believe it is increasing exponentially, and we are well on our way to seeing Peace Prevail on Earth. But it has to start with each individual experiencing and being Peace, and then living it and encouraging all.
I wish you a Spirited week and many peace*full encounters.
Hello Linda, it's so wonderful to meet people with so diverse life experiences! I was born in Mexico City and even when I come from a middle class family, I was always in touch with poverty as my mother is a doctor and was very committed to working with poor people so growing up I was able to see people in a lot of need, that only lived a few kilometers away from a huge place like Mexico City, but still leave in extreme conditions, and where mothers had lie down on the floor after delivering as the hospital where my mother worked didn't have enough beds. As a teenager I was involved with my church, and they would take us to the "Lost Cities" also a few kilometers from my city, where people live in cardboard houses held together by stones and nails very close from landfills in very unhealthy conditions, all this left a mark on me, and I want to get more involved in helping others. Now I leave in the US as I married an american 4 years ago, we are now getting divorced, and I'm finding my happiness again. My friends and family keep me grounded and strong, now that I'm alone in a strange country. I believe that I'm here to learn from this great country and go back and try to contribute to change my country. Stay in touch and keep believing in Universal Love!! Blessings to you too, Elizabeth
