Humanity is not just another animal species. We are so much more than that, we are capable of creating, innovating, flourishing and more importantly, rising from even the most adverse situations.

It is important to remember that the strength of humanity is only when we live together, work together and strive together, otherwise we are no different them animals living in the jungle fighting for their space and their existence. Thus, it is imperative that all members of the human family must not forget their ethical responsibility that the individual has to him or herself, towards other individuals and also to oppressed groups.
