I'm answering another question from the book called If...
If you could change one thing in the world right now, what would you alter?
Hoo boy. Where to start, right? Because I'm not cool with talking about politics on this blog--and besides I don't think electing a President is going to change some of the most fundamental issues we face--I'm not going there. Honestly, my first thought was, like a Miss America contestant, "World peace." It is the starkest example of what my dad calls "man's inhumanity to man." (Anyone know who he was quoting? Because I don't, and I doubt he remembers either.)
However, the question does not say that I am given the power to prevent wars from ever breaking out again, so then we'd be back to square one. Also, wars aren't the only type of violence that damages people's lives. So I think I am going to say that I would make every family loving, good, and decent. No child would ever be abused. Every parent would give their best to their children and teach them how to treat others the way they want to be treated. And I think that would solve a lot of the problems.
Too bad that can't happen to every family on earth. We still have to try to help it happen wherever we can.
