In the Name of Humanity

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has called for the end to the War in Gaza.

I find his strong and well-chosen words quite startling:

“In the name of humanity, the violence must stop.”

With so many Wars of Religion continuing to fracture our world with fear-based faith, where we so often hear either calls for Peace or calls for War “In the Name of God,” it’s almost refreshing to hear a world leader choose words that get to the heart of the issues we all face. . .as Humans sharing One Fragile Home.

What if we would hear this more often, and heed this call to practice compassion, justice and reason

In the Name of Humanity.

Is there really Any Other Name that can call us to Responsibility?
