I'm amazed! I have followers and I follow people from other countries, who speak other languages.
With the click of a button, I can translate Spanish, French, Turkish, or Greek into English.
I know that I often use slang in my writing so I can only imagine how it appears to my foreign friends, but I find it fascinating that I can now read the words of people, a half a world away, who speak a language that I don't understand. But new technology makes those words and ideas accessible to me....and my words and ideas accessible to them.
How interesting is that? I believe that people all over the world are alike in many ways. We want food when we're hungry, we want to keep our families safe, and a chance to do meaningful work with our hands and minds. I don't think that's too much to ask! After all, we live in a garden. There is enough to go around, if we can learn to take only what we need, and share the rest.
Imagine if all the countries around the world didn't have to spend vast amounts of money of defense. What if those dollars were spent on food production technologies, education, training, and renewable energy sources...for all countries?
I know it's a pretty big leap from and translate button on my blog to World Peace and True Happiness, but
