“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod is washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.”
– John Donn (1572-1631)
We may all look and act differently, but we’re all interconnected in some way. Though it looks fragmented, all humanity is one.[googmonify]4494413162:right:250:250[/googmonify]
This fragmentation, this separation, is but an illusion. I am certain that mankind is headed for a glorious age of unity and freedom from violence and animosity. The poem also stresses the importance of responsibility in our lives. World peace starts with I, you, he, she, and they. Every last single one of us needs to take personal responsibility for the world to change.
