Working together, world’s people can solve many problems

Catholic Courier    |    10.01.2018

To the editor:

In hope, thought, prayer and blessing, we watched and listened (this summer) to the rescue of the Thai soccer team from the caves. We saw the best of humanity. People came from many nations: the UK, Belgium, India, USA, Singapore, China, Japan, Australia, Israel and more. Ethnic and religious differences meant nothing — only the good of others.

As a world of nations working together for the greater good we can work miracles and wonders to end environmental pollution, child trafficking, poverty, hunger, conflict and much more.

Yes to the basic goodness inherent in each person! Yes to providing a good future for our children.
