Because I have experienced a prosperous, healthy and happy existence, I must have been a decent person in a past life.
I come from a background in the military where everyone had health care. We understood the value of education as a given. You learn a skill, earn a pension and go on to 'Be all that you can be'... You invest in people. You hold people accountable.
