ALL HUMAN BEINGS

Posted: September 21, 2020 in 2020 Guess Who's Back

Over the past several weeks I have watched many news broadcast and commentary. Commentary and news about racial injustice and the current pandemic. There is one key phrase that continues to be repeated by all. “We are all Human Beings.” This is true but is saying “we are all human beings” just a new phrase to be said without any real meaning. In a way, this has been worn out.

What does it mean to be a “human being”?  Let’s define Human Being; a man, woman, or child of the species Homo sapiens, distinguished from other animals by superior mental development, power of articulate speech,and upright stance. (Oxford) 

These words are so impactful that they continue to be repeated. They are repeated without real thought to their meaning or context for use. Over and over, and over, and over again they keep being said.

As a human….. I am saying the next time that you are talking with your friends or family and you hear them say  “we are all human beings” stop them. Then ask that person to explain.  In this way, hopefully, we can understand what its meant or if they are just saying what everyone else has already said….”We are all Human Beings!”
