"I have said before that we have collectively failed the people of Syria. The Security Council has not exercised its preeminent responsibility with regard to the maintenance of international peace and security. History will not easily absolve us, but this failure compels us to do even more to offer the people of Aleppo our solidarity at this moment." United Nations(UN) Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at Tuesday's Security Council meeting on the situation in Aleppo.
Humanity's shame is Aleppo, it is Syria, it is the increasing number of civilian and child deaths in conflicts and agitations from Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East, to Myanmar and other places in Asia to South Sudan, Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and elsewhere in Africa along with all the other places worldwide where injustice, inequality and violence are wrecking the lives of good people.
Yes, the UN, other organizations and the alleged stalwarts of democracy, with their talks of freedom and of peace, have failed many people. They will continue to fail many more because the global community, apparently, does not have the will or the desire to usher in peace and stability.
Humanity's shame is inescapable despite the non-karma belief of many. Yet, it is for certain that with any action, there will be a reaction. Therefore, who knows what price humanity will pay for its failing?
