Words That Matter - Part 1

The other day my coworker, Sara, and I were taking a walk. I was ranting about the lack of compassion, empathy, respect - everything human - in the human race. Sara said something that has stayed with me.

Sara: "Years from now -"
Noor: "When the human race has successfully eradicated itself?"
Sara: "Well, that has been under consideration for millennia, but years from now when people look back at this time, our time, they will recognize it as one of profound change, like we look at the Renaissance."
