We all do have basic like food, shelter, clothing, touch, etc.. Unfortunately, even though I believe everyone is entitled purely because they are alive to these needs …needs often go unmet that creates crime, developmental delays in children, disease, unplanned pregnancies and mental illness. Until this country values human life, peoples needs will not be met and children will suffer

I've used a diagram of Maslow's hierarchy of needs in presentations I've made to illustrate the necessity of taking care of the basics if one would build toward the highest level of existence the natural human can reach. Here's a copy-and-paste internet address to a diagram/visual of this concept for anyone who might appreciate a refresher:

It is interesting to consider how my priorities have changed in light of today's economy. In the past, I wanted to earn a B.A. for no other reason than to prove to myself that I could do it. Now, I am motivated to earn a master's level degree in order to not only get a good job, but also maintain one in the future. I am now focusing my attention and energy in the "Safety" tier of Maslow's hierarchy of needs, which focuses on "security of employment, resources and property," rather than in the "Self-actualization" tier.
