Can't we all just get along?

I recently watched a program about octogenarians who achieved fame and success in their lives. The interviewer asked each person to finish the sentence, "If I were in charge of the world..." I was pleasantly surprised at how many of these people--actors, musicians, politicians, writers--said, ..."there would be no war."

I agree. If it were up to me, there would be no war. People world inherently abhor the very notion of hurting one another. There would be no torture, no abuse, no horrors of war.

There are far too many unintentional ways to suffer. I want to live in a world where cruelty is always unacceptable, period.
