In 20 Years - We Trying to Give Peace a Face and a Voice
Mother-Son - Daughter-Grand-daughter - Grandparents - Teen Son - Daughter- Daughter
Four life stages to think about.
The first twenty years... you are being told to grow up and learn something. Nobody is really interested in what you have to say. You are dependent on economic support and with eighteen you don't really see a reason to vote. School is ok for some but not for others. Understandable because you have not figured out yet that curiosity is one of the permanent and certain characteristics of a vigorous intellect. Samuel Johnson said this and went to school. There is a rebel in all of us and this is good because we should not conform to anything except the Constitution which gives us independence and rights to go through life. Were do you learn this stuff? Of course in school and at home, but you have to ask the questions. Now you know what curiosity is all about and you develop a plan for the future. Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among people... let us dare to read, think, speak and write. John Adams said this and he went to college.
A very important tip for students: Read Donald J.Trump's Miniature Book Edition: Think Like A Champion. The best advise to get the most out of life.
The second twenty years... pretty much depend on how willing you are to learn. But we had only one Einstein and he said that the strength of the Constitution lies entirely in the determination of each citizen to defend it. Get it; defend your interests because family life with kids is around the corner. Motivation und involvement is on the agenda. Having a family and a job should be rewarding. But life is not that easy and from now on you depend on luck, good decisions and right choices. What we obtain to cheaply, we esteem to lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a price upon its goods, and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated. This said Thomas Paine the author of "Common Sense". Money pays bills but does not necessarily bring happiness. Be aware of the fact that you can build your own castle and become a prisoner in it. Advise of a person you don't know. Check into the golden rule archive and you will enjoy life with balance and harmony.
Quotes of the past for life today - Wisdom does not change - Only balance and harmony
The third twenty years... " An open society grows and withers according to power of ideas and to the vitality of its interior dialogue''. John F. Kennedy. The ups and downs we all manage through a dialogue at home, at work, as a messenger or elected official. Of course you live a healthy life and were spared tragic events so far. Now it is time to give something back to the less fortunate in your community or as Dr. Martin Luther King said: "I never felt more a partner in the making of American law than when I was in jail protesting one". By now you should be well experienced to understand the world around you and have enough knowledge to make a decision to support the vision of idealistic citizens everywhere with their educational effort to the eternal cause of human freedom. As Thomas Jefferson said: " We the People... are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty''.
The fourth twenty years... you should enjoy your retirement and your grandchildren and always remember what Woodrow Wilson said: ''A nation which does not remember what it was yesterday, does not know what it is today, nor what is trying to do. We are trying to do a futile thing if we do not know where we came from or what we have been about''. Oliver Wendell Holmes said: "A mind stretched by a new idea never returns to its original shape." It is better to forgive Woodrow Wilson's racist attitude at the beginning of the 20th Century, then to ignore wisdom and curiosity. Stay involved for posterity sake and tell others to take a look at the Constitution and ask yourself the question: can we ever have peace on earth? Yes, with your help we can.
"The measure of our superiority may very well depend upon the event to which our country utilizes and develops the talents of its students. We want from you not the snoors of the synics or the despair of the faint-hearted. We ask of you englightenment, vision, illumination". Senator John F. Kennedy remarks to the B-CC Class of 1959 at the Chevy Chase Senior High School in Bethesda, Maryland
Our vision goes hand in hand with Albert Einstein quote:" There are only two ways to live your life. One is as if nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is."

UPDATE OF LIFESTAGES: IQTask Questions? Second 20 years...
Are you terrified by the unfamiliar?
Do you want to be a person who is pulling a lever, to push a button, turn a dial, to shift the gear with no mature knowledge, no sense of responsibility, no emphathy, no philosophic sense of the whole?

Do you feel that the human race is immature and needs to mature for the common good?

It gives you the most vital knowledge to understand what is happening and why it is happening. The luxury of waiting for better times is gone. Judges will play a more important role in the future then politician and this you will find out at the end. Proceed the test:

Now, that you worked yourself through the new world of getting information, there is only one thing left: "What am I going to do with all this information?" Follow the Status quo or in the coming years explain it to someone else. But remember that there are thousand of judges and politician who according to their own advertisment only have your welfare on their minds.

The great law of peace was created by the Iroquois American natives to stop neighboring tribes from fighting. The document, recorded on wampum belts, formed a confederacy among the Iroquois tribes: the Oneida, Mohawk, Cayuga, Onondaga, the Seneca and later the Tuscarora. The Iroquois place its creation between A.D. 1000 and 1400. Contemporary historians date document at about A.D.1450. Deganwidah conceived, a man believed to be non-Iroquoinian ancestry, who traveled the southern shore of Lake Erie and Ontario as well as the St.Lawrence River with a Mohawk chief, Hiawatha in an attempt to bring peace to the warring tribes in the area. Hiawatha served as Deganwidah's spokesperson.
There was a young Mohawk women with the name Kateri Tekakwitha who lived in the 17th century and is still on our mind today with an ongoing Peace Conference. It shows that people, no matter what their race or religion is, want to live in peace.
Colonial leaders became aware of the Iroquois Constitution during the French and Indian War from treaty and council meeting they attended with Iroquois tribes that had allied themselves with the British colonists, rather than the French. Many scholars believe the Great Law was the longest international Constitution until that time. The only possible exception to this was unwritten English Constitution, which had its origins in the Magna Charta. Certainly in fifteen century Europe nothing existed to rival this American Indian Constitution. The Iroquois Constitution influenced the U.S.Constitution, a document that outlines the organization of the three branches of government, defines the power of the government in relation to individual states. It was framed in 1787 and was adopted in 1789.
