Is there anything in this world, you would like to change?
Are you going for it, or are you just complaining about it?

Thanks to greg dahlen, for this question.

    I would like to help teach the public that you can't have social freedom without economic freedom.

    I would like to help teach the public to trust and respect science.

    Mar 15 2014: I would love African governments to do more to end environmental degradation. I'm not happy with the oil spills in the Niger Delta; Rhino poaching in South Africa breaks my heart; I wish we can stop depleting forest resources in West Africa.

    I wish we would treat our environment like a treasured lover.

    Mar 9 2014: I want everyone to be equal from the day they were born. Everyone is offered opportunity to climb up the ladder,which if he or she work hard will achieve his or her goal. Not the few with special privilege,while others' lives are doomed with no way to answer their dream.
