Martin Luther King, Jr.:

All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.  Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.  I can never be what I ought to be until you are who you ought to be, and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be.

(Quoted by Coretta Scott King in the foreword to Strength to Love, 1963)

so profoundly and simply true. When one person suffers, the waves of suffering spread in ever bigger circles. If we're going to survive as a species, and a planet, we need this understanding to go global.
