Help me out here. I want to find out what you would do to make the world a better place? I don't want to hear about what's wrong with the world... I can get that on the news. Specifically, what and how would you make the world a better place?

I think it would be great if they could open more free stores where ppl could donate things (clothes, furniture, food, toys) they no longer want and ppl who want them or need them could just go get them without it costing. I see alot of ppl throwing stuff out b/c no one wants to mess with trying to find somewhere that will take it. I also think it would be great to set up more centers where kids can go and spend time with other kids (with someone supervising) rather than running the streets...alot of parents are working and their kids are just running wild. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

What could you do personally? We can't wait for "they" anymore.

What could I do personally? How about what do I do personally? We have a freecycle where I live so anytime I have things to get rid of I list them there where ppl that need them and don't have the money to buy them can get them for free, I'm constantly dropping change into donation boxes including the Salvation Army bucket at Christmas, I help out whenever I see someone needing it and I treat ppl the way I want to be treated with respect and compassion. It may not be much but if everyone did it we'd have a better world to live in. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I would like to have the time to spend with my friends to find out and understand what would make them happier and healthier. After that I would like to be able to help them find what they are looking for or atleast point them in a direction where they may find the answers them self.

1) I would ban all purchase of oil from the middle east. Make countries do with the oil they have at home. And solve the middle east problem. 2) I would ban all cars with more than four cylinders... to save on oil. 3) I would ban all coal power stations. The biggest polluter on the planet. 4) I would put restrictions on how much power and water each household can use. They would get a monthly quota... and once they reach their quota... the meter would shut down. The biggest users are the one with the most money to pay the bills. That would put an end to that. Conservation is what is important. Not how much money you have. 5) I would put a law in place for every country in the world... that no woman is allowed to have more than two children.

How would you punish people that violate your bans and restrictions?

1)The US and its allied can easily have a blockade in the Middle East with the use of their Navy to stop any oil tanker leaving the ports of the Middle East. 2) The governments forbide any car manufacturer to sell cars with more than 4 cylinders. A car manufacturer won't break an order from the government if it wants to stay in business. 3) Coal Power Stations are under government control. Not a problem. 4) Domestic use of power and water is controlled by a meter. So it is already taken care of. 5) Any man having his second child would be given a compulsory vasectomy. And any woman having a second child would also be required to have a compulsory sterelisation. Now... if you are asking me "How do we make every country in the world to abide by those laws?" We can't. We need to rely on their good will to do the right thing. And yes... it is a lot to ask. But going to war with any country who refuse... is not the solution either.

I would live and teach others to think and act like children. what i mean by that is children think everything is possible. no matter how many times you tell them know they know they can do something. even when they get hurt they keep trying. i think if we lived and thought like children, without doubt, without fear, without thinking there is not enough for me, with love and sharing, with concern for the next person. learning to laugh at yourself and the silly things we do. I would open a school and teach people to how to live like children would be a great start.

Sounds like you think the world needs more fun? What would be the first lesson at your school?

This is just a quote, Be nice to people and people will be nice to ou, Treat people the way you want to be treated. never Judge a person, get to know a person, never made decisions alone, always get another persons oppionion.

Great advice. We all need to start respecting other people more.
