What we owe to each other.
Viewed through one lens, the world is a dumpster fire. Viewed through another lens, we are on the verge of a sci-fi-esque utopia. There is no denying that there are people suffering. There is no denying that the current world is a better place to be human than at any time in our species' history.
But, we each individually aren't "humanity". We are all striving individuals.
When you are starving, it is little solace that you are one of the fewest ever.
When your family is safe and warm and fed, and yet your waking hours are spent providing, it is overwhelming to conceive of how to "save" the suffering human race.
All of which leads me to the quote that sparked this whole line of thought....
"Everyone wants to save the world; no one wants to help Mom do the dishes." P. J. O'Rourke, All The Trouble In The World
Every action, NO MATTER HOW SMALL, bends the future in a direction.
Do the dishes and pick up the litter...save the world.
