I believe we are all a part of the human family and should respect one another
> as kindred. The health of each promotes the health of all and as a nation we
> have the ability to bring economic and social balance to struggling others.
> U. S. companies should be required to pay no less than what our minimum wages
> are here, when they employ outside our country. This would give others a
> viable choice to stay in their more prosperous lands with potential to thrive
> in a healthier environment.
> I believe that as long as humans feel they have the right to judge others,
> they should keep in mind that we are fallible and all make mistakes. Once a

> punishment should not continue throughout their life. They should not have to
> forfeit the chance to be honest, productive citizens by having a host of jobs
> eliminated from their future. Healing cannot continue when their paths are
> circumvented to the same trap.
> I believe we are guests upon this planet. Each small part we occupy and each
> small part we visit should be as respected and cared for as the minute area we
> call “home”. To destroy the cleanliness of the resources openly given for our
> care brings shame upon the human race and reflects an indifference towards
> those who will inherit the damage. Such action is purely based on greed it
> was never based on survival.
> I believe we are individuals working towards a goal of unity that all will
> continue to work together until all achieve the highest level of understanding
> and acceptance. We do this using all three parts of ourselves: mental,
> physical and spiritual. I believe each person is working an unseen Plan
> developed specifically for their own level of development. We cannot,
> therefore, force our systems and beliefs upon others, whether they are social,
> economic, physical or spiritual. The only question which should be asked when
> contemplating the interference in another‚s choices, in another country’s
> choices, should be strictly based on what is the best good for all concerned.
