"Any man’s death diminishes me because I am involved in Mankind."
From the beginning of time when the first group of humans walked on the earth so many millions of years ago, the strongest tribe conquered their weaker neighbors and showed them no mercy. They took all their possessions and subsequently killed or enslaved everyone in the group.
Even in more civilized times, landowners or factory owners of all countries used their workers and slaves without regard to their welfare.
As more people became educated, they became aware of the inequity between the different classes and began to demand better conditions for those individuals who had no rights.
The earth is now at an important crossroad in it’s history. In a nuclear age, we must think carefully which philosophy we want to follow. Will we follow the idea that the strong will continue to exploit and subdue the weak, leading to more poverty, continual war and possible complete annihilation, or will we begin to see that all men want to live with security and dignity and begin to devise new ways to make this possible?
Already a few powerful men are beginning to try make a difference. Men like Ted Turner, Bill Gates and Sir Richard Branson are sharing their resources to help all people regardless of country, race or religion to live better lives.
Let us hope that this will be a signal to other caring powerful individuals and especially to all leaders of powerful countries which will begin to take us in a new direction of less greed and more compassion in the future, and which will give to all children a new chance for happiness and for hope.
