Life is Precious, Don’t Forget That

Human Rights

I have to say, I think that we are in some kind of crossroad as to whether civilization is civilized, or has it turned onto itself in its raw prejudicial and cannibalistic way, consuming others due to their bizarre desire or merely just because the individual is different from the rest of the common folk.

Are we really qualified to take on the responsibility of nurturing life; or have we grown in complete redundancy and apathy as our religion?

Life is not about society and its conformity to society’s standards (much less expectations!). Does a single person have the courage to really go along with the truth? Is one life more important than the thousands?

Or does one voice brings about justice compared to a million?

Life is precious. Don’t forget that.
