The Letter 'I'...

Individuals we all are
Soccer, hockey, cricket, polo
Different sports we all enjoy
Come on team - Go! Go! Go!

Indeed we are different, still all can agree that we:

  • have an imagination
  • feel sad when we are ill
  • know that a clown will illuminate a dreary day
  • want to be intelligent
  • learn when we have something incorrect
  • know the internet has much information
  • improve our class work with each passing day
  • have our idols
  • practice our intonation when learning a new language
  • know how to print the letter I

One popular image of the probable condition of humanity in the twenty-first century anticipates a new Armageddon with all the great civilizations at war with each other. This model neglects a less dramatic but deeper-seated process of worldwide change in which national economic and political systems become more alike and populations worldwide come to adopt similar lifestyles and develop similar attitudes and values for daily living.
