I truly believe that the biggest handicap to the human race today isour lack of forgiveness towards one another. Our stubborn pride prevents us from forgiving those who have done us wrong in matters sometimes small and hardly significant and in other times in matters of major consequence to the coexistence of ourselves and to other inhabitants of our planet. We continue to trip over our egos, neglecting to treat others how we ourselves would prefer to be treated. If we all would just start the practice of forgiveness, many matters, of both local and international concern, could be alleviated and we would all make this world a better place to live.

As far back as I can remember, as a child, I could never understand why people had to pay to eat. It just seems like a basic human right to me. For all of the problems our world faces, many of them could be solved if no one went hungry. So if there was one thing I could change, it would be how we perceive hunger. Make it a human right to have access to nourishment and make it every nation's top priority to feed it's citizens.

All of the posts have been so good. I grew up in a city, El Paso, Tx, that was right across the border from Cd. Jaurez Mexico. It always bothered me when I was in college that you see could see people living in cardboard, and plywood shacks with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. The poverty these people lived in was deplorable. I always wondered how their government officals lived with themselves knowing more than half their population lived in such squallar. The older I got, I saw that there was a large population of our own people living the same way. The only difference is they weren't out in the open. They lived in cardboard boxes under the overpasses, in cars, on the outskirts of towns all over the U.S., and just where ever they could. It seems we ignore these people....making light of them...yelling at them to "Get a Job." How many of these people need medical care ormental health care? How many are our veterans who have served our country only to have no place to go when they come home? How many have lost their jobs, homes, everything they had and are on the streets because they have no alternative?

What would I change? Food, a place to live and medical care should not be something that any person should have to do without. Poverty just isn't the lack of food....it's the lack of the basic things that we all need to live. So that's what I would change.

Well I know my idea is unrealistic but I believe if it could be done it would go a long way to reducing stress and increasing better health around the globe. Not sure who or how the standard work week was created but seems that with the 5 day work week and 2 days off setup they obviously were not thinking about the health and well being of anyone. I would love to see a 3 on 3 off system instituted to reduce stress and increase health and well being. Should be enough workers in the workforce to make it happen......ok now I will wake up.

I would love to change the world's apathy for one another.

Too often our collective awareness of world issues and problems goes unheeded or is given little effort.

I often hear exclamations of "That's terrible . . . we should do something abut it." or "That is wrong . . . something should be done." or "Why is this allowed to continue?", etc., etc., etc.

Only to hear those same exclamations again and again because NOTHING changes.

For me . . . this is in direct relation to our collective apathy. It becomes too easy to get stuck in the mentality of "I can't do anything." or "I don't have the time (resources, money, energy)." or worse yet "It serves them right.", and the problem or issue persists.

However, it's many of these same folks that when confronted with something that is "truly personal", where I've seen people move mountains.

Often it's the level of apathy (or lack thereof) in those moments that gets things accomplished.

There is little that we as humanity can't do . . . if somehow we can collectively "give a damn".

Hopefully, we'll figure out how to care for another, once again (or if we ever really did), before our ability to do something, is no more.

I would change it so racism completely ceases to exist. This would cover all of the globe, all nations and all people. We're all human and should treat each other equally. That is what I would change =)

Okay, call me crazy, but what about 24 hours of world peace. No roadside bombs killing my brothers in Afganistan, or Iraq. No train collisions with over 60 killed, no mass killings, tidal waves, earth quakes, sinking ships, airplane crashes, nothing. Just 24 simple hours where no one is killed, just a little peace, for real. Imagine it, only thing is we would still would have to hear the media lying about something, and politics.

I would want Science and Medicine to be able to come up with a cure for alcoholism. I've been sober for almost 3 years now and the disease had devastated my life and those around me until I joined AA. AA is for people who WANT it however, not for those that NEED it.:wf

Ummmm, this isn't gonna win but here goes. I would like to see the worlds population reduced by about 5 billion. People are killing this planet. Now I won't go into how that would be acomplished but I bet it would do the human race good in the long run. No wrong answers, right?

My wish would be the removal of PAIN. Physical pain, mental pain, the pain of hunger, the pain that goes along with poverty. If we could channel all the effort that mankind has from pain into helping others we could end so many of the worlds problems. Think of all the money spent daily on pain relief, we could feed everyone on this planet. All the wasted money on drugs. Again, we could afford housing for the poor. If all the people that have unbearable pain were pain free, the man power to change the world would be unbelievable. I know I would be out in the world trying to make a difference in my community.

Thank You CARL
