Simple choices make a difference

I enjoyed the news today... The president of Russia and the USA sat down together today to talk about their differences. Not shout across the pond or wave sabres. Just talk - like they meant it.

We don't know what was said, or how seriously it was said - but communication is a HUGE step on the road to a better world. And there's significant symbolic value in the outcome of the talks. More nuclear disarmament - must be considered good - but things like allowing American transports to Afghanistan to overfly Russia and resumption of 'military co-operation' are both public signs of more positive relations.

Thank you..
..but don't stop there...
