Thought for the day:
>>>From: Kadish Family <email@example.com>
>>>Subject: Be a matriot
>>>Spread the word, a new idea has emerged. We live on a democratic
and the vote is for matriotism. Given the tremendous outpouring of Peace
Marches around the world, we earthlings want no more war. We have come to
realize that saving our planet is more important than anything else. We
matriots; we support mother earth, our beautiful home. We now live on such
a small planet that local actions everywhere have a profound effect upon
everyone. No more war, no more pollution, no more greed, no more
gas-guzzling inefficiency. Sure it's going to mean some sacrifices. A true
matriot would be willing to give her or his life to save the world for
future generations. We have to start with a new attitude. Spread the word.
Selfishness is out, selflessness is in. Tell everyone, we are matriots and
very proud to be living on our planet earth.
