"An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity"
--Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
'The month of April marks the 42nd anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We are commemorating the life and work of Dr. King by creating a memorial in our nation's capital. The Washington, D.C., Martin Luther King, Jr., National Memorial will honor his life and contributions to the world through non-violent social change.
After years of fund raising, the memorial is now $14 million away from its $120 million goal. This will be more than a monument to a great humanitarian, the National Memorial will be a place for visitors from around the world to share the spirit of love, freedom, and peace.'

"Moldova was also among the four
transition countries which in 2005 were worse
off in terms of HDI than in early transition, and
its losses in terms of human development were
the largest compared to all other countries. This
decline was largely due to the economic collapse
associated with lower enrolment in education
and the population’s poorer health status. As its
economic growth model fundamentally influences
a country’s outcomes in terms of human development,
it has to be said that in Moldova this
growth has been narrowly based in geographical
terms as well as socially inequitable. The decade long
increase in outward migration of labour is a
symbol of Moldova’s defi cient economic growth
model, which contributed to a weakened social
fabric, family disintegration, domestic violence
and a worsening demographic outlook."United Nations Development Program HDI 2009 p.21
