Views

I believe we should learn how to love one another, to make the world a better place for all. Injustice, malice, greed, ego, and selfishness will destroy the universe because we have failed to have empathy for the voiceless, lonely, and poor.

Quotations: Live your life and mind your own business 24/7.
