From the Foreword by Jay Gary, APF Chair:
A century ago, Europe was plunged into a Great War following a terrorist event, taking 18 million lives, only to be followed by the deadly 1918 Influenza Pandemic which took another 50 million lives, mostly young adults. After the war, a progressive US President, Woodrow Wilson, received the 1919 Nobel Peace Prize for promoting the League of Nations. Central to Wilson’s life was his view of knowledge: “I not only use all the brains that I have, but all that I can borrow.” It is APF’s hope that every person who picks up this work will “use all the brains that they have” and “all that they can borrow” from the wisdom of the future-oriented friends who contributed to this volume.
