People aren’t reducible to numbers.
People aren’t reducible to fans and followers.
People aren’t reducible to customers.
As James Baldwin once said, “Nothing is more important than a human being.” The hearts and souls of individuals will always be more valuable than their money, their votes, their endorsements, and their ability to make us feel good about our social status.
We’re not here to use people for our own ends. People ARE the end.
Everything we use is nothing more than a tool for serving, uplifting, and deepening our connection with humanity.
The best thing to invest in is not a legacy, but another life.
