    That's a wide open question, Avatar. Do you mean for myself? my loved ones? my community?

    For me: self-respect, I'd say. But to achieve it, I need to adhere to a cluster of values and standards. Sometimes I fail.

    For my loved ones: I want them to be happy. And I have a bias, especially for the kidlet, of wanting her to be safe. But again, this all breaks down into a whole cluster of values.

    For my community: I want there to be justice, and hope. Of course, there's not much agreement as to how that should be achieved.

    And you, Avatar?

    I know it's a wide question.

    I'll share mine in a bit. I'm in a mood right now. Not very productive for rational discussion.
