Janine I can’t agree with you more that change will have to come from a change in heart, as the heart is the source of all life; the biblical perspective on the same view was modeled by David who prayed in Psalm 51: 10 (as per NIV bible): “: 10) Create in me a pure heart, O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me”. And the Lord answered the Prayer for all people in Ezekiel 11: 19; “I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their hearts of stone and give them a heart of flesh. And the same answer also in Ezekiel 36:25 which was directed to the individual person. 

Thank you Janine Benyus for the lovely peace, I wish everyone could give your views some thought.
