Essay: Prelude to Women Walking part 2 of 2

Unfortunately as a species, we’ve advanced in our technology to the point that we 
can pack doomsday into a suitcase and send it across the world, but we haven’t 
advanced in our simple ability to get along, play nicely and share.  I once read 
that you could accurately gauge the direction and future of a society by observing 
what they are willing to do to and for the least among their members...one look 
around the world today should have all of us properly horrified!  Albert Einstein 
once said  “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World 
War IV will be fought with sticks and stones”.  I think every single soul on this 
planet should think about that statement and ask ourselves if this is what we truly 
want to create in the future, because it doesn’t have to be this way.  

Uni means One and Verse means Song...literally translated, we are all One 
Song.  What will it take for us to recognize this and begin to work together to 
produce harmony rather than the cacophony of discordant notes that we are 
currently collectively expressing.  I hope my contribution can in some way add 
value and make a positive difference in our world.
