01 Aug THIS MONTH: MONDAY GETS HUMAN
At first glance, this might seem like a strange focus for a monthly theme. After all, we’re pretty sure you’re “human.” Nothing shocking so far. But we think there’s more to it than just that, so please hear us out for a second. Just because we are all members of what scientists call “Homo sapiens,” it still leaves plenty of room to argue how “human” we really act. So we want to ask, what makes us “Homo sapiens”? In Latin, Homo sapiens means “wise man.” We can be wise, when we choose to be. But what about our ability to feel? Our ability to create? Our ability to connect and communicate? Our ability to know right from wrong and strive for a society that promotes the common good? This is the human part of us that we want to dive into this month. Why? Because there are endless opportunities to be better, a better human and a better group of humans. We can express ourselves better. We can choose kinder words and actions. We can be better friends and parents. We can even be better strangers to one another. So get ready for a month filled with embracing our humanness and humanity. It’s going to be all about us, “Homo sapiens.” And, since you are one of them, you should be able to ace this. Being a better human matters.
