Humanity is laughing at others' misfortune. And it is consoling the battered and weak. It is rocking a child to sleep. And it is beating her in a drunken stupor. Humanity is making choices in our daily lives. As humans, we have the ability to act on things other than our basic desires; sometimes these acts transcend the animal within, and other times they sink far below. Humanity is of both dreams and nightmares; a blessing and a curse; knowldge and ignorance.
