We all make choices about what is important to us. We have to or else we’d go broke trying to fix everything.
(At least I would).
So we do what we can with what we have and make the best of our lives. That’s human and admirable and obvious and great. But plenty of times we turn a blind eye toward things out of our control, but still bother us. Staying sane requires this, as we can’t constantly worry about things we can’t control, because we’d go mad.
But, I’ve found times when something has bothered me enough, and my capacity to help matched what was asked of me, and did what I could. What cause could be this important?
More than anything else, genocide. If we want to advance as a species, as humans, as people, as global citizens, as Americans, as a person, we need all the help we can get. We need billions of people living for more than just survival, we need them thriving to advance all of us.
I’m not a rich man, but I’m giving $50 to help Insight Labs prevent genocide.
That’s what I’m doing tonight. Also, I participated in an Insight Labs experiment once.
Thank you for the post about our event and the support. It’s greatly appreciated.
