Oh @rampancy, I agree 100% but I also think when there are so many who don't even bother to take the time to read a book at all, well...

The world is changing. Regimes don't like change. Neither do the countries who finance, lend support and rely on them for resources.

Freedom & fairness does not exist in a world that operates at the expense of lives & land considered to be worth less to those who profit.

Worldwide, we must change the way we think about people in other countries (incl. our own). We must allow change and not fear it.

Why can't it be the time for people to rise? Why not change the world? Things are not working. Enough lying to ourselves. Enough sleeping.
