Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.” — Robert A. Heinlein
Truer words were never spoken… except maybe the Golden Rule and the obligatory "Ruben isn't Bill Kurtis" ^_^.
If only more people on the internet had profile pages on their blogs like this:
I am an early adopter, a mom, a writer, a video producer, an avid reader, self taught on a lot of software, a progressive, and I’m worried that my country seems to forget its noble aspirations and its humanity.
I see social justice issues, problems of poverty and inequality and prejudice, and I imagine new solutions, ideas quilted from what I’ve read and heard and seen. I use "found media", clippings from old paradigm forms of communication (magazines, newspapers, shopping catalogs) and new paradigm methods of communication (internet blogs, online news articles, twitters/plurks).
I think the internet, with its ability to connect people irrespective of borders, is our great hope for a world of mutual consideration and peace.
