Going Your Own Way


You have brains in your head.

You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

You’re on your own. And you know what you know.

And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go. (1)

Girl Power


Camfed – Campaign for Female Education – has discovered that poverty is the main obstacle to the education of girls.

Research shows that the consequences of not educating girls are not only felt by the individual girls but by the entire society.

If you educate a girl she’ll:

Eradication of Evil


We can never eliminate tragedy – even in a perfect world tragedy will exist.

Evil, on the other hand, as it is created by us, is well within our control to eliminate.

So, how do we eliminate evil?  Are there fundamental actions we can take that will help to eliminate evil from the world?

If evil is not a force in itself but an absence of good (just as darkness is absence of light) then it would stand to reason that there must be things we can do that will increase ‘the light.’

There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.
Henry David Thoreau

I wonder what we can actually do to strike at the root of evil and let goodness flourish?
