Do something to make the world safer

(Continued)

Here are other suggestions being brought up, such as, “talking to your children,” “take away the violent games kids play,” “take the filth off the TV screens,” “eliminate drugs that make people violent,” telling people that it is their business when violence, corruption, oral decay, lack of respect and greed affect our lives and families. Maybe adopting just one of these will make a difference, but doing nothing isn’t going to help either.

Well, having said all that, I sincerely hope you had a Merry Christmas, in spite of those wishing to ruin it, and I also sincerely trust you have a Happy New Year, contributing whatever you can do to make it so.
