Need Your Faith in Humanity Reaffirmed?

Faith in HumanitySometimes I go for days without opening a newspaper. It gets downright depressing reading about all the school shootings, political gridlock and homicides. But every now and then, I come across something that actually reaffirms my faith in humanity. Take a look at “26 Moments That Restored Our Faith In Humanity This Year” and be reminded of why you should still care. Hat tip to my friend, Miriam Rabinovitch.

And here’s something I first read for my high school English class but that has stayed with me ever since. Maybe it will speak to you as well.

“Meditation XVII”

No man is an island,

Entire of itself.

Each is a piece of the continent,

A part of the main.

If a clod be washed away by the sea,

Europe is the less.

As well as if a promontory were.

As well as if a manor of thine own

Or of thine friend’s were.

Each man’s death diminishes me,

For I am involved in mankind.

Therefore, send not to know

For whom the bell tolls,

It tolls for thee.

  • John Donne

Stay safe out there.
