We have the ability to determine what we value and act upon it.
We can alter our perspective of the present and vision our future.
We have the power to choose.
We can base our priorities on something beyond instinct.
We can use our resourcefulness to remain 'civilized' regardless of how difficult the circumstances.
What separates our species from the 'wild kingdom' is more than our opposable thumb.
