The world needs to think more like women

Compliments running the New York Times article about K.V. Switzer, who ran the Boston Marathon 50 years ago. She showed that women can be equal and could run as well as men. It seems men tend to jump into war while women tend to talk and negotiate, which is what we need more of. World War III could be the end of civilization on our small fragile planet if male thinking prevails.
