I’m Somebody, and So Are You

There is a beauty to the piece of art here that pierces straight to our hearts.

The sad part of it, however, is that essentially regardless of your religion, or lack thereof, you really don’t believe that such a thing exists.  Most believers in God say that He gave us free will, and thus we’re on own to get through the conditions we’ve created for ourselves: the trend toward world fascism, the uneven response to dread diseases, and the destruction of the environment.  There is no-body and no-thing that’s going to do it for us.

Yet in a strange way, that’s an uplifting thought.  It reminds of the idea: “I used to see the world’s most horrific events and wonder why somebody doesn’t do something.  Then I realized: I’m somebody.”
