What does it mean to be human?

#267 Do we act as individual entities, or do we look out for one another? Does #goodwill feature in our days, either given or received? Do we know our neighbours? Are we involved in our communities? Questions sparked from a lecture and an encounter today. The lecture was about the place of the church in society, its role in politics and its social action where we thought about the human condition, considering ourselves as relational beings, yet living in an individualistic way. Later at the supermarket I was blocked purposely from entering the filling station when it was my right of way. My protests were completely ignored. This person cared only about his needs, not what was right in that situation. Have we evolved to become too individualistic, only caring about ourselves? Are we #travellingalone on this life journey or do others accompany us along the way? #shareyourthoughts
