"An individual has not begun to live until he can rise above the narrow horizons of his particular individualistic concerns to the broader concerns
of all humanity." —Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King,
Many of us lead lives which usually involve us as individuals seeking to better ourselves and our families and those lucky enough to have them, close
Unfortunately survival has been made much harder due to the systems which we have made and amalgamated into our society, this affects each and every
one of us, and some are concerned in just basic survival and others trying to keep up with the pace of life the systems demand of us.
Yet some of us can think beyond our own existence here and think of wider humanity, and the problems it faces now and in the future. Decisions and
mistakes made now are going to have affect decades and even centuries to come. Some believe that our environment is very important and should be
protected, since it is our life support system. Yet our species seems to be more concerned with excessive materialist life style which the system of
economics encourages. This in turn can lead to the destruction of our environment in exchange for this type of life style.
The political and religious divisions have been long standing in our history, it seems a vicious cycle and we have locked our line of thinking into
our own individual beliefs. These divisions have created enormous problems for our selves as a whole, and instead of unity, it has created disharmony
amongst us. If humanity can unite for the common good, many of the problems we face could be solved almost over night.
