Keep in mind that these are just my views; I do not speak for LDS in this entry.
Wars, earthquakes, floods, mudslides, blizzards, ice storms, hurricanes, tsunamis, etc. It's enough to drive anyone mad! (oh, did I mention poltics?)
Is there any hope for this messed up world? In short, the answer is yes, but there has to be a massive turn-about, and that probably won't happen. (We can always hope and PRAY!) If I could pick just one attribute that would turn around this crazy, hate-filled world, it would be unity. No matter our race, creed, ethnicity, etc., we can still have unity. How? you may ask.
The answer is so simple that we've been looking it in the face for who-knows-how-long, and have dismissed it. In this everything-seems-to-be-complicated world, we tend to think, It can't be that easy! But the truth is, it is. What is this key that is so simple?
Respect and understanding. Yep, you read it right. Respect and understanding. You can't live in a me-centered world and expect harmony.
