I believe we are at a critical crossroads in the evolution of human society. I believe that we are capable of getting through the crossroad and onto a track of social progress. I believe that the way to this progress involves a monumental effort to promote and practice understanding and respect for cultural, religious, and political differences, NO MATTER HOW GREAT the differences appear to be. I believe that true strength comes from compromise and forgiveness. Unfortunately, I do not believe we will find this path.
