A better world

A better world

Money is mute.
Humility talks.

Landmines are consumed by
dung beetles overnight

People have the confidence of cats,
the loyalty of dogs

Every word is a dollar to be spent wisely

Uniqueness is celebrated,
conformity tolerated.

Every child is declared a National Treasure.

Children conduct workshops for parents
on Spontaneity and Optimism.
