When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I am a born activist
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Human Rights, Other
So what is it?
The human and environmental exploitation by the West has created a vast disparity, causing many problems, which affect women and children the most. The runaway pursuit of profit has caused the degredation of humanity, our planet.....
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
the quest for wealth and power has created an environment lacking in humanity, reason, or integrity, creating a vast disparity between the very rich and the very poor; 2.8 b. people live on less than $2 per day. Many of these people are women supporting children. 27000 children die everyday from poverty related diseases. We have allowed a global cultlure of greed, violence and poverty to grow into a worldwide catastrophe for billions of people.
Can we change the world?
