And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let’s stop all the fight.

“No living organism can be broken by force into an adjusted state and still remain able and amiable.” L Ron Hubbard  ‘Self Analysis

“There are no conflicts which cannot be resolved unless the true promoters of them remain hidden.” ~L. Ron Hubbard How To Resolve Conflicts

“Whenever you’re in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.” ~William James

“Nothing is given to man on earth – struggle is built into the nature of life, and conflict is possible – the hero is the man who lets no obstacle prevent him from pursuing the values he has chosen.” ~Andrew Bernstein

Will there be world peace if there are no politicians? World peace would not depend upon the existence or non-existence of politicians, if only people, individually and collectively, understand and live up to the canons of perfect righteousness, wisdom, truth and justice. As long as people do not rise to this level, ‘politicians’, which is only a name for those who are in charge of the administration, will continue to be actuated by their selfishness and greed and will accordingly ride roughshod over the feelings and sufferings of millions and will go on embarking on wars however destructive they may be in general.

If we cannot end our differences at least we can make the world safe for diversity.
John F. Kennedy

Amidst the confusion of the times, the conflicts of conscience, and the turmoil of daily living, an abiding faith becomes an anchor to our lives.  Thomas S. Monson

We must teach our children to resolve their conflicts with words, not weapons.
William J. Clinton
