       Whereas our society has developed highly effective means of 
     speedy communication around the world, but has failed to 
     ensure meaningful communication among people living across 
     the globe, or even across the street, from one another;
       Whereas the endurance of human values and consideration for 
     others are critical to the survival of civilization; and
       Whereas being good neighbors to those around us is the 
     first step toward human understanding: Now, therefore, be it
       Resolved,
