Will Not Do (The World)

Will Not Do
I got a little carried away on this one. Then I decided not to post it.

Be Our Statesmen

Yes, a statesmen, not a politician.

I am moved and excited by what individuals are doing to help other people and, of course, to affect the people in power, (there are some u turns happening because of human opinion), I think social networking may be the new way of understanding. Dealing with the details of all these people is absolutely wonderful. Rescuing and caring.
