How to make the world a better place?

I try to live by a simple motto. Harm no one, bring no one pain or suffering, and leave the world a better place for having been in it.

I am a life member of two major internationally respected humanitarian organizations.

As well as the above, I recycle everything that can be recycled.

Grow my own vegetables and some of the fruit I eat.

Try to open the minds of people I meet, to show them that they are capable of thinking for themselves and to be less judgmental and to understand that the world is not black and white but rather shades of gray where there are few absolute rights or wrongs.

Give away old items to those who need them. I make sure they are serviced and fully operational and in good condition first.

Encourage people to be less materialistic and to evaluate their needs vs. greed.
