Let It Never Happen Again–to Anyone

The ultimate example of man’s inhumanity to man was put to an end 74 years ago, on January 27, 1945, when Auschwitz, the Nazi concentration camp, was liberated.  It imprisoned people who were torn from their families and lives simply because they were Jewish.  It was a place of unspeakable conditions, torture, and death.  It used human beings for ghastly experiments because, after all, these weren’t people  in the Nazi mind but sub-humans, so it didn’t matter if they suffered.  Some 200,000 people were able to leave the camp, but not without physical, emotional, and spiritual damage that has lasted even to today for those thousands of survivors still alive.

Auschwitz is still fresh in our minds on this anniversary and, to many, every day.  As it should be–so that we never allow that to happen to any group of people ever again.

Run-of-the-Mill Humans

Stephen Hawking was a great scientist. He had the world and future figured out and lived long enough to see some of it  confirmed. Sometimes he commented on humanity, as well.  Such as in today’s Thursday Thought quote.

“We are all different. There is no such thing as a standard or run-of-the-mill human being, but we share the same human spirit.” –Stephen Hawking

America, Fight and Be Inspired

This short video was for 4th of July, but, with all the bad stuff happening right now, I needed it today.  There’s so much violence in our country, and other forms of man’s inhumanity to man, that we’re forgetting a basic fact: we are all  Americans.  And, despite evil deeds by a minority of us, we have a lot to be proud of.  Most important, together, we can unite and fight and defeat the evil that’s among us.

Watch this video of long-time actors, many of whom are no longer with us, as they ask God to bless America. Be inspired and revitalized.

The Greatness of Humanity

How can humanity be made great?  In today’s Thoughtful Thursday quote, Mahatma Gandhi tells us.

“The greatness of humanity is not in being human, but in being humane.”


Advice from an Old President

Today’s Thursday Thought quote reminds all of us–citizens, legislators, world leaders, family members–of what really matters.

“We all do better when we work together. Our differences do matter, but our common humanity matters more.”  —  Bill Clinton

Talk and Action

Today’s Thursday Thought is a Biblical one that struck me because of how much inhumane action is going on in our world today in the name of doing what’s best for people.



Coretta’s Voice is Not Political

People use her words for political gain, but her message transcends mere politics.  She speaks for humanity and the soul of mankind.  As in today’s Thursday Thought.


How to Crush a Human

Today’s Thursday Thought quote deals with what happens when humanity is taken away from a person.

“When you crush the humanity out of humans, you’re left with humans with no humanity.” – Rick Yancey, The Infinite Sea


On Standing Up and Rising

Today’s Thursday Thought comes from a man who spends his life observing others and reflecting on life.  Often-quoted Dr. Steve Maraboli is a bestselling author, speaker, philanthropist, and behavioral scientist.

“Every single time you help somebody stand up you are helping humanity rise.” — Steve Maraboli
