Humans: Constantly lowering human standards

"I didn't wanna go another round,
An angry man's power will shut you up,
Trip-wire fill this house with tip-toe love,
Run out of excuses with every word,
So I'm here and I will not run"
- Guts Over Fear, Eminem ft.Sia

Let's face it and talk about it today. We are irrational, we are violent, we lack, we envy, we give in and more than often we hurt others. Humans have been killing humans long before the modern terrorism, prior to the present day weaponry and with full intention of doing so; sleeping normally the next night. Whether in the shade of man-made religion, or in search of power or sometimes just because they wanted to do it anyways. Wars have been fought so that one country can have something that the other country has. Battles were uphold simply because one nation's leader disagreed with what some other country's leader had to say.

It's easy for one to ponder over the humanitarian issues of the world while changing songs on smartphone whilst driving on a public bus in Canada, than to act or do something about it. Not only it is hard to alter something in our perfect world, it's practically near impossible. There are organizations, law firms, banks and other 17 bureaucratic non-sense which will prohibit you to do that. And even if you successfully manage to make your case against all that and present it to a country's government (or to who know what is the ultimate authority, GOD ?!), 98 other people out of a hundred will probably disagree with you because the idea doesn't have anything in it for them.

I keep losing my faith in humanity whenever I see such events taking place like the one in the US at the moment, and keep re-gaining it whenever people like David (some stranger on the road) gives me a lift to nearby station on a rainy day, when I see somebody helping someone who can never repay them back, and yes I try to do a random act of kindness whenever I'm presented an opportunity to do so.

We have to understand that we are the only ones we've got. If you don't like somebody because they follow a particular religion, or because they look like that, or sound like this, or are from a different country, or don't agree with you; well too bad! Just suck it up and deal with it! NOT BUY A FUCKING GUN AND KILL THEM! Or make them to leave the country or just plainly hate them. Try to work with them, try to talk to them, figure out what's wrong with you, or maybe don't do any of it, but don't participate in practices that end up hurting another person, emotionally, physically or both.

Just see what wonderful things we can achieve if we work together, give an equal chance to everyone to make their argument. Not only care for your family and friends but also care for others around you. No matter how much money you make, everybody's going to die one day anyways. Let's try someone remembers you after, maybe because you helped them, or maybe because you talked nice to them or just because you smiled at them daily on the train while commuting to work.Try to fill life into years not years to life. Let's all try to be better, or at least to be human, the word we call ourselves proudly!
Peace <3
