  • Jul 16 2012: To say that the world needs something in particular is too big. It's too big of an idea. It's too big and too vague. The world needs hope? Hope for what?

    I think there are small changes that each individual person could adopt that would and could change the whole world. And I think that change is the ability and willingness to understand other people. If we can stop for a second, and imagine what it must be like to be someone else, maybe we will stop judging, hating, and fighting. I believe in the good of people, and most people act reasonably. It may not seem reasonable to us though, unless we stop for a second and consider their influences and motivations. If we can do this, we can break down walls.
