    1st is to be KIND

    3rd is to be KIND!
    You have no reason than to show kindness to the people around you. Mahatma Gandhi stands for greatness and Kindness.

  18. Although I missed it, thank you campus for inform people about good stuff around the world.

  19. Oh i again missed another opportunity.

  20. I have never really thought about the future until Until two months
    ago an announcement was made at our school about one girl. She
    was seriously ill. She had cancer. A very aggressive form of it. The
    doctors in our country did everything they could for her. Still she was
    dying. Her only hope was the treatment that she could get in
    Germany. She needed minimum of 50 thousand Euros to be able to
    go and soon. The price of the human life. It’s a lot of money here. So
    her parents started raising funds wherever they could and
    eventually came to our school. Nowadays we have almost got used
    to such stories because after the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station accident the rate of cancer
    among children in Belarus has increased 13 times. This power station is situated almost at the
    boarder of our Republic and right after the accident the wind was blowing north and carrying
    radioactive clouds in our direction So there are articles in newspapers, announcements on TV,
    Internet about kids dying of cancer who need urgent help.

  21. The wonderful thing is that as we decrease the scale of economic activity, we actually increase our own emotional well being. That is because at the deepest level localization is about connection. It is about re establishing our sense of interdependence with others and with the natural world. And this connection is a fundamental human need.

  22. ” I began my career as an economics professor but became frustrated because the economic theories I taught in the classroom didn’t have any meaning in the lives of poor people I saw all around me. I decided to turn away from the textbooks and discover the real-life economics of a poor person’s existence.”

    Muhammad Yunus
