An idea worth spreading

Every human has good inside, and has a reason for each wrong action. We all laugh, we all cry, there should be a way to communicate, universal, primitive, that will allow us understand the reasons, and create a way to eliminate that reason to avoid wrong actions.

I'm passionate about

The inner good at each of us.

Talk to me about

the message in music, short stories, sights, tears. Also computers.

People don't know I'm good at
