Unscramble the Blue Letters

And I actually believe that the TED cnuimtomy needs to be more courageous. We need to find ways to embrace these challenges, these problems, the suffering. Because uimlltteay, our humanity dedneps on everyone's humanity. I've learned very simple things doing the work that I do. It's just taught me very simple things. I've come to understand and to believe that each of us is more than the worst thing we've ever done. I believe that for every preosn on the planet. I think if somebody tells a lie, they're not just a liar. I think if somebody takes something that doesn't belong to them, they're not just a thief. I think even if you kill someone, you're not just a killer. And because of that there's this basic human dignity that must be respected by law. I also believe that in many parts of this country, and certainly in many patrs of this globe, that the opposite of poverty is not wletah. I don't believe that. I actually think, in too many places, the opposite of pretvoy is justice.
