What does humanity mean to you?
“Humanity is the distance between you and I. The shorter the distance, the closer we are to each other. The farther it is, the less likely we become connected. It is that distance which is the missing ingredient that could bring us closer to loving one another.” – Rodel Mallo Sumadic, student/online video maker
