I can picture one day my grand children one day asking me where I was when the great tragedies of my generation happened and why didn’t I do something. It is easy to rationalize saying that I didn’t know and that it was too big, that there was nothing that I could have really done.
It's true that as individuals we don't know and that there is nothing that we can do, but it is also true that we are happy living in our little shell. But our little world does not excuse us from learning about others and to share on their suffering and to do something about it
C. S Lewis once wrote, "We must picture Hell as a state where everyone is perpetually concerned about his own dignity and advancement, where everyone has a grievance, and where everyone lives the deadly serious passions of envy, self importance and resentment."
