What do you think the world needs more of?

This video really made me think. It's such a simple question, and like one of the people they interviewed, usually I would say "love". But things have been happening in the last few months, and I've had some interesting debates with people, and now I'd say:

I think the world needs more...understanding.

Ignorance is the bane of civil society. When people refuse to even try to understand things or people that are different from them, they are wasting an opportunity to learn, and thus, they are wasting the opportunity to live.

I think that making the conscious decision to understand "the other" will not only be better for those who are misunderstood, but also the person who will have learned something they wouldn't have known before. 

So many of us live in fear of things and people we don't understand - isn't the solution here clear? Make an effort to understand that which we fear - talk to that transgendered classmate, ask the woman in niqab how here day is going, and have a chat with that homeless guy you pass by every day when you go to lunch. You will be surprised by how much that will improve your day, and your life.
Well, that's my opinion. What do you think? What does the world need more of?
