Where is the humanity?

A brief scan of the news this morning made me realize the constant struggle for personal freedom and rights of value.  The news is littered with examples of the dynamic tension between the individual and the powers that be.

The rights of the individual basically boil down to what we collectively can agree on.  So I want to think about what I can do to promote freedom and free thinking.  Looking at the world around me as a blank slate – as in never experienced before.  Not trying to make the world fit into something that I know or are comfortable with.  Maybe even be “uncomfortable” with what I see and experience.

This is the greatest test of my humanity.
