The apathy of many humans remains too vast and wide. This absence of care, interest or the suppression of passion, emotion and excitement for things worthy of deep feelings, is the reason why conflicts breakout in the first place and are waged today in places like Syria and Yemen.
But humanity cannot sustain such apathy for it would kill the human spirit and spell the end of the human race.
Therefore, in order to sustain the continuity of the human race, there must be a discovery and/or a return to empathy - an identification with the various feelings, conditions and attitudes of others.
The refugee in an alien land is worthy of empathy. The physically and mentally challenged are worthy of empathy. The employee three-pay grades below you is worthy of empathy. The earthquake-stricken victims are worthy of empathy. The fire victims are worthy of empathy. The victims of crimes are worthy of empathy. The lower caste people are also worthy of empathy. And so are all the peoples suffering under flawed or failing governments.
So, let us be kind, compassionate, tolerant and patient with each other. This is our world and that which befalls one today, could in some form or another, befall another tomorrow.
For Planet Earth's sake and for the continuance of the human species, we must move toward the discovery and the return of empathy.
