We Must Never Lose Faith in Humanity

During this difficult election cycle (and era of change in this country), which has unfortunately brought out some of the darkest of human traits, I look to the words of my great heroes; human prophets who gave their entire lives to the service of educating we lesser mortals. Their words were uttered with humility, compassion and a prescience that extended far beyond their own time on this planet. One of my greatest heroes is Mahatma Gandhi, who said the following:

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”

What he meant is that we should never lose faith in the ability of the human spirit to ultimately triumph. It is truly one of the most awe-inspiring aspects of our mortal lives.
