Vera, if you ever get down on the human race (and, goodness knows, there’s ample reason to do so), just watch what we humans do when the rug is pulled out from under complete strangers by a natural disaster, terrorist attack or other such calamity.
In general, we respond with a sincere, overwhelming outpouring of compassion and assistance.
People volunteer. They give money. They donate blood. They pray. They help rebuild, sometimes even traveling vast distances.
Watching humanity’s reaction restores one’s hope. It refills depleted souls.
It feels good.
