  2. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Beyond measure i.e. to a very great extent true love, quality education, equal rights and justice are really all we need to make the world a better place. Yes! you heard me right, although money is needed. But, it's not paramount. I mean, money alone cannot and will never make the world a better place.
