    This was a great article. I found their organizations on Facebook and followed a string of great orgs out there that are working on this kind of project for the best of all of humanity. As I followed the trail I found the Elie Wiesel Foundation For All Humanity – and this quote on their page (I think it sums it all up.)
    “My plea is that our success will no longer be measured by the failure of others – but by their prosperity” – Jonathan Calloway
    (First Place Essay Winner via The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity)
    Imagine if our society could grow to a point where that kind of inclusive thinking were possible. Like that saying that “We’re only as strong as our weakest member.” and things like that. If society realized that leaving people behind in the dirt while it rolls on selfishly just wouldn’t work maybe they’d finally realize just how vital it is that we all succeed in every area of our lives. Is it possible to hope for that kind of growth? I hope so!
    *** Roseanne when I see what you write I am so curious if you’ve ever had something like this happen:
    When I was younger I used to have like regular almost instructional dreams of everyone working together as a community – one person was good at baking, another at building, another at childcare, another at mechanics, another at consoling, another at organizing, another at teaching etc and as each one did what they were good at there was virtually no cost to living because we all worked within the whole and did our part and even people who have disabilities and illness and were elderly could do their part and they were ‘less’ afflicted than people are now and it was amazing. The dreams were so vivid and so detailed of how harmonious and less taxing a life it could be – it was as though it were a movie or a book or some amazing gift of how things should be. I always wanted to do something with all of that information but I’ve never been able to figure out what but I know that projects like this are precisely the kind of thing that this sort of idea would create and embrace.
