Could not overlook this!

The following is apparently an extract from the 2019 inaugural address by the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky:

“We need people in power who will serve the people. That is why I do not want my picture in your offices, for the President is not an icon, an idol or a portrait. Hang your kids’ photos instead and look at them each time you are making a decision.”

Just imagine what the world would be like if everybody considered their kids before making any decision.

    • And of course it goes far beyond politics. If industry has listened to the environmentalists, would we be having the current climate issues? If medical research funding was used primarily to identify causes rather than treatments of various conditions, would we still have such a prevalence of serious ailments? Powerful words indeed.
