Mine too, here's another one of hers that rings true for me.

Sister is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once the sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship.

I wonder if Marg Mead was speaking from her personal experience, or from the communities she studied? Anyway, there certainly was competition (if you could call it that?) between us sisters three. I always thought my older sister took on the role of secondary mother (dunno.gif why) and I resisted that because I already had a mother and my younger sister wasn't competitive with us, per se, just trying to find her place. At this time, the younger sister and I are close, whereas the older sister still clings onto some role other than an equal sister, she created long ago in regards to us both.

Everyone has a responsibility towards this larger family of man, but especially if you're privileged, that increases your responsibility.
Susan Sarandon

I have always believed this too. Those with wealth and power should do more for the larger family of man (I like that phrase).

Bill gates is a really bad example of philanthropy. Vaccines are not the answer, big investments in Monsanto are not either.
Clean non GMO foods and water coupled with education would be a far better approach.

It's an interesting study on how the wealthy make their donation and pledge promises.

"What I learn from talking to so many women around the world: If you can empower them with the right things, the right tools, they can lift up their family. And that ultimately lifts up their community and their society."
Melinda Gates
