We Are Not Entitled

When I think about how society behaves and how people treat each other I am disgusted. I get embarrassed when I watch people treat each other like crap. I am embarrassed and ashamed that I have so much as being the same species in common with them. When are people going to learn that we are all a part of the same family and that we need to be there for each other instead of preying on each other.
Then you have the way that people treat the planet. They act like they are entitled to everything, even that which is not really theirs. When people act like humans are the only creatures on the planet that matters I am outraged.
No I am not one of those save the Rain Forest groupies. I just know that we are not the only things that matter on Earth. In fact, we may be the least important. If you kill off all of the base producers then everything else dies. If you kill off all of the humans the planet will actually prosper.
We are our own worst predator and that sickens me. We do some many horrible things to each other that no other animal does. True there are good people out there too. What embarrasses me to call myself a human being is that are so many more horrible people than good ones (or at least it seems like that most of the time).
