A world where the resources are shared fairly among each country's citizens, and nobody is starving or wanting to go to war against a neighboring country. Is it possible?  Researcher Cecile Johnson believes the latest African Development Plan just may work. It acknowledges the fact that the root of the problem globally is economics, and it acknowledges that the deep emotional scars from the transatlantic slave trade must heal before there can be a rebuilding of trust among the people of various races. She proposes that this time leaders actually work together to emplement the plan, as opposed to just talking about it. Are we ready to take action and change our condition? Have we suffered enough or are we still willing to keep suffering, waiting for someone else to fix the problem? Which organizations are already in motion with workable solutions and just need the people to join in the efforts? How will we get those who are hogging all the resources to share what belongs to everybody? Can it be done peacefully? Cecille Johnson shares her views on the possibilities.
