What would you most like to change about the world that you live in?
It would be so good if people could learn to listen and try to understand one and other. Perhaps then there wouldn't be so much hatred and bigotry which is so often born out of ignorance.
What can you do to make it happen?
Hopefully I can try to understand and listen to the people I meet and encourage them to extend the same courtesy to me. Small steps but perhaps they may then be encouraged to take the same approach with others in their life.
When you're not busy changing the world, what do you do for fun?
Try to meet and enjoy the company of new and old friends. Nothing better than a good chat, over a beverage of some sort, with good company.

Here's the correspondence so far - nothing brilliant but just me having my first go supporting an issue that is important to me.
