Don’t Stop Doing the Right Thing – How Mexico Gained Greater Peace

Mexico’s People Experience Greater Safety!  It’s a wonderful new headline we are seeing these days.
Its Peace Index has improved nearly 14% in the last five years. That means people are safer. They can walk the streets at night, feel better about their families, and face less corruption in business.
So what happened? The drug war really set Mexico back for a time.  Drug lords could literally “own” a plaza, a neighborhood, a business. So President Felipe Calderon declared war on the drug cartels and brought in armed forces.
But it got worse. In 2011 there were nearly 20 deaths per 100,000 people due to violence.  But after a vigilant struggle, homicide and crime rates have gone down by more than 30%.   That tells us we need to keep at it!
When you take a stand for right, sometimes it gets worse. Don’t stop doing the right thing!  

Believe good will surge again. It will!
