From my friend Rich…I have read this several times as well, but it is such a succinct reminder of where we are now…and what is to come.  But we need not look at the end at a problem but a relief and a freeing from bondage IF we create and image anew world without starvation, war, atrocities, and care for the planet…-A.M.

I truly believe that history does repeat itself, and human nature is a constant, so although parts of this e-mail have been around, the first part is a constant reminder that I find most troubling, without subscribing fully to the second part, We appear to be on a disturbing trend.
