The Promise Of Humanity

What is the promise of Humanity? It may seem that there is little positive about who we are.  The ways we have chosen to live is short sighted and thoughtless, out of touch with the rest of our world with cringe worthy if not criminal negligence. So, much of what we have created for our own kind has gone awry to the disadvantage of our planet and its many innocent and suffering beings. However, I feel we have always had and still have the potential to envision, create and foster for the positive rather than for the worse. The selfishness we possess has corrupted the beautiful abilities of our kind. I believe that we have used our remarkable ingenuity primarily for our own unchecked needs. We have misused it for what is fine looking form rather than for what is exceptionally good function. The time has come to answer to all life on our globe with humility and best action.
