And if you want to end the violence, you could build a million new prisons and you could fill them up, but you never end this cycle of violence unless you invest in the healthcare and provide the means for your average citizen to acquire skill and the intellect to acquire a good job. Sometimes it is our teachers that help develope and influence the character development of our children and young adults. If as a country you fails to invest in making a quality of education available to all then it stands to reason you will lessen your standing in the world economy
you focus on a good education, good health care and a good job. And other than that, I don't feel strongly about anything.
"Why should there be hunger and deprivation in any land, in any city, at any table, when man has the resources and the scientific know-how to provide all mankind with the basic necessities of life?" ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
