Everyday we all wake up to new accounts of disasters and suffering, hunger and strife. Some of us choose to read about these events and some choose not to, some people may help but many will not. It’s hard for many people to feel positive about much of the news they read and hear right now. Usually the feel good story at the end of the morning paper about the guide dog saving someone’s life will help us forget about the previous’ page story about genocide and war, and then we can continue on with our day “can I get easy whip on that mocha?” I hope that the articles, opinions and information posted in the future will help us understand how we are all connected on this planet. Working together to try and improve life for everyone starts with the seed of education, then we can act and change will blossom.
