When we die it doesn’t matter who we think we are or where we live in the world…
we die… this is the great equalizer, we’re not a list of made-up words (Black, White, Gay, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Rich, Poor, etc.) used to separate us from each other and our humanity.
How do we begin to understand ourselves as human beings and these incomprehensible crimes against humanity from our past and here in the 21st century?
“We Stand With You” “We Pray For You” have become meaningless words we hear when incomprehensible crimes against humanity happen at home and around the world, we must evolve as a species.
We must NOT continue to evolve into a society with no concerns for issues of aggression, injustices, atrocities, human rights abuses, and so on simply because there’s a PROFIT to be made from them.
“We share a commitment to a life of service, a responsibility to confront injustice and a belief that the most often overlooked are the most important to listen too.” – Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex
