Am I not HUman?
In an age of gross convenience for the few at the expense of the many, the question must be posed. Do we collectively remember our humanity or are many of us too far gone, lost... insane? Are those of us free of the extreme oppression of our brothers and sisters in re-developing countries so far removed from compassion that we cannot imagine what it must be like to starve, or watch our own children starve, be tortured or killed? We cannot afford to ignore the reality. The cost of ignoring our duty to our human siblings everywhere is our humanity.
