The Power of Hu­man­ity

Central and North Burnett Times - - YOUR SAY -

CHANGE is in­evitable but it’s how you nav­i­gate it that mat­ters. In this ev­er­chang­ing world we urge every­one who cares about our so­ci­ety – whether you live in Bris­bane or Bund­aberg – to re­mem­ber we all de­serve re­spect and dig­nity.

Our coun­try’s suc­cess is built on this very idea of a fair go for all, a no­tion un­der­pinned by the very ba­sic prin­ci­ple of hu­man­ity. Hu­man­ity is univer­sal in na­ture and urges that all peo­ple – no mat­ter their gen­der, race or re­li­gion – to be treated with re­spect, and given the chance to live life in dig­nity.

We have choices to make: a fair go for all, or just for some; unity or sep­a­ra­tion. We all have the chance to nur­ture and pro­mote the kind­ness, com­pas­sion and good­ness that are es­sen­tial for hu­man dig­nity.

At Red Cross, we work for unity, hu­man­ity and the in­her­ent dig­nity of ev­ery per­son. We en­cour­age all Aus­tralians and our com­mu­nity, po­lit­i­cal and busi­ness lead­ers to do the same. — Judy Slatyer, CEO Aus­tralia Red Cross
