    An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity. - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.​

    Yes, yes, yes! We all need to move beyond a "I got mine/you get yours" mentality or a "It's not my problem" outlook.




    Thank you for sharing this.

    note the bit where it says "ALL humanity". once you get there, there might even be hope for moving on up to "ALL Life"!! at which point humanity could/should become "Aware".



    (when y'all get to the point where you realize that humanity is the exact same thing, with the exact same needs and feelings as the rest of Life, you'll have achieved "Self-Aware". and when it all gets put together into knowing that "I" am a multipartite entity consisting of all life forms on the planet (well, it's actually much broader than that, but i'll not tax your minds too much just yet), "Conscious" will be right around the corner!!)

    So true because we are stuck on Individualism more then collectively
    which breaks down our humanity awareness.
    Thankz sis
