Oh, There’s Humanity?

Humanity isn’t just a word or a concept. It is a constantly evolving notion. In times of struggle humanity can be a harsh and brutal thing. Pushed to the limit a human being does not often resemble one.

In times of peace humanity is a dull and tiring exercise. Are there measurements for humanity when being humane is not what is needed day to day?

I see the different ways in which the obstacles ahead shape what constitutes a living, breathing honest to God person. Like most I lie and consider myself assured that I see it in myself as well.

The reality is that a man has no more say in how human he is than he does in how others will interpret that humanity. He will not know until he knows. And in order TO know he must be put to the test.

Shame that the test is a pop quiz.
