Being Human: A realm exploration of what makes people, people.
Well the Being Human: series was a complete flop. Raging against Politicians, Cheering for Politicians, Superbowl, the creationists wars, Republican douchebaggery (not a word but I don’t care)and a thousand little things took center stage.
So, I’ll answer my own question, it will be drowned out by first place blood-lust any way. Regardless of the suffering, real or imagined, regardless of the injustice, the inequality, regardless of all the negative we report about on a daily basis–I say yes we can be redeemed as a species.
People do the imaginable everyday but there is also merit in the mundane. You don’t have to save the world, you don’t need to save a life, a smile to a stranger ( of course I’m not talking 2am in central park ) helping someone cross the street, holding a door open for others–engaging in these trivialities is how you pay for the privilege of being HUMAN. Pick something of your own but if you read this and find no value in it then YOU may be beyond redemption—don’t mistake it as WE are all irredeemable.
