There is no hope, unless it is action, an intro

Most of us don’t realize how lucky we are.
Happenstance plays a defining role in our lives and we’re not even aware of it. Just imagine yourselves having been born to a poorer family; in a poorer country, or in a country at war. Imagine a life in which your greatest accomplishment would be daily survival.

We dismiss our underprivileged brothers and sisters as simply “unfortunate”, or, even worse, as “under-accomplishers”, not having tried enough. Or having made the wrong choices, as if we are infallible.

Humanity’s greatest flaw is that we take for granted things that aren’t.
NOTHING is granted. Not our wealth, not our good fortune, not our health.

Roughly, 80% of the planet’s population manages with only the 20% of the world’s wealth.
Every 3 seconds a child dies of malnutrition.

What makes you think we deserve better?

Our actions change the climate, turning this jewel of a planet into a hostile wasteland. We’re diminishing the natural resources. We cut down rainforests, effectively reducing the oxygen available for breathing.

The thing about Mankind is that you can either be a part of the solution or a part of the problem.
Inaction is NOT non-participation.

No hope, unless it’s action.
