In 1954 like buds of a flower we were ready to bloom.
It was our time to take on the world.

Now we wonder. Where have all the flowers gone?

The single most important cause in the universe is the individual!
If we do right by the individual we do right by all races, groups, religions etc.
Governments, religions and causes do not feel pain, experience emotions
or feel remorse. Any cause that does not treat the individual with
dignity and compassion is a false cause.
