America's most radical founding father, Tom Paine, united a disparate group of immigrants together and ignited the formation of a nation with a forty-page pamphlet called Common Sense. 

"Soon after I had published the pamphlet Common Sense [on Feb. 14, 1776] in America, I saw the exceeding probability that a revolution in the system of government would be followed by a revolution in the system of religion... The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion."-Tom Paine

Common sense understands that only justice; which requires equal human rights for all people as the way to security and peace for all.

A true friend will always tell the truth even though it can be brutal.

What is needed in times like these is more not less dialogue about the pain of the other, for education is the way to compassion and compassion the way to change.

"We have it in our power to begin the world again" -Tom Paine
