    proper health care - it starts with the stupidity of the drug war and with children born of addicted mothers who have suffered during development.

    it starts with a society that lacks empathy for those who are "different" and continues with lack of opportunity, jobs, a future.

    it continues through apathy and hatred and jealousy and justification that those who do this are "different" (less than human).

    we need to STOP it by realizing NO child is born this way - they learn to hate, to judge, to envy, to become the way they are.

    we have to fix the social illness that is turning us into isolated, uncaring, judgemental, cold people - in ALL countries where this occurrs.

    in turkey, many years ago, two female friends were beaten walking on the street while not "properly dressed" (western tourist clothing of slacks and modest top).

    education - that seems to be the starting place. yet, in this nation, there is a systematic move by elements on the right to destroy our once proud education system - and, even on the left, there is some denigration of higher education as expressed even on this site lately.

    we have a problem.  as i said earlier, i don't know if we can fix that problem.

      when we seek to embrace "cultural diversity", we find ourselves faced with cultures that have no respect for diversity.  Children learn their attitudes at home, and from their peers, not from "enlightened" teachers in schools.  I do not know how we get around that.  I do believe that once the violent predators are loose on our streets "sympathy" and "compassion" no longer serve us, or society in general.

      Fake Left, Drive Right . . . not my idea of a Democrat . . .
