Humanities Moments

We’ve all had “humanities moments” — when our lives were made richer, more poignant, and meaningful because of the insights the humanities provide.

Live with a humanities mindset!

Description

As a society we are so often encouraged to go about our days in such a way that builds our own futures. This is great and all, but we need to think of the effects of always thinking of ourselves. This standard attitude of underhanded selfishness is so prevalent that seeing a person take the time to recognize the future of another individual or group of individuals and actually take action to improve the future of that or those individual(s) has been given a series of special names; charity, or donation, or social service, or community service. Why not make it a part of every day to chase our own dreams at the same time as fighting for futures beyond our own.
