"The reason why the world lacks unity, and lies broken and in heaps, is, because man is disunited with himself." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

We are nothing without each other, no matter how many seemingly endless bodies of water and continents separate us. We are all a part of humankind, one is not more important or more valuable than the other. We are all mothers, fathers, sister, brothers, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends, husbands and wives.

It's so easy to forget while we are out shopping for the perfect gift that some of us are hurting, fighting, and dying.

We have to do better, for ourselves, for our children, for humankind...we have to do better than this.
