Be Good. Do Good. Think and Say Good. (only) God is good.
Each location, each person in fact, deserves a customized response....
Development: We must seek growth, not perfection
(not just economic growth, silly -it's a personal improvement mantra)
St. Ignatius motto: Be a man for others.
Boy Scout slogan: Do a good turn daily.
Song lyric: One world is enough for all of us.
(not 3rd, 4th, 5th worlds) -d.e. quote
Meet Basic Needs for all: food, shelter, clothing.
(tasty, nutritious, enough)
(protect from the elements, warmth, comfortable, style)
-look good-feel good
Positive atmosphere: Safety & Security, Comfort, Health, (mental and physical)
(peace, no war or conflict, conflict resolution, peace officers, properly sized social units -1 world, working together, no militaries, wasteful military expenditure, economy structured to protect against starvation, homelessness, that provides new shoes or whatever, and provides peace of mind, human right to healthcare).
PLUS: Friendship, Companionship, Relationships, Community
(if loners prefer isolation, they should not suffer psychically, however)(community spirit, everybody about helping everybody out, all for one, one for all)
You only need peace when the world is in pieces? Inner peace.
May the rest of your life be the best of your life: continual growth, betterment, improvement.
(We all live in a yellow submarine, we're all in the same boat, it's a global village, spaceship earth. Live together, or die separately). Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me. (Let it be gin?) Make love, not war. All you need is love. Just say no. Go climb a rock.
*One of my professor's recommendations: Pick a place, learn the language and culture and history, and go make yourself indispensable to your country.
I say: You're God, throw your weight around. Make a better world.
Some say: hello; I say heaveno. Kinda dumb. Forgive me, oh gods, for I have sinned.
