SandyWalsh 1 A re-evaluation ab0ut what virtues are important and I believe Our present day icons could set an example. it's

~ now rather cool to be thrusting. aggressive. self-obsessed and hedonistic. And qualities such as modest. generous. altruistic. philanthropic and selfless are not qurte as hip. I often wonder if Gandhi would now be thought of as extremely strange!

2 For us to wake up to the fact that the human race is only a tiny part of the ecosystem on this planet and we need to start using rather than abusuig its resOurces.

3 A personal plea for a total ban on junk mail not only to save trees but also allow me to have a genuinely ‘nice day'.
