When you travel and begin to realize that yes you have been selfish and spoiled rotten, and you need to help the ones who need it. Mankind has fucked up, and humanity needs to fix it. Call it wishful thinking, mumble that it’s impossible, whatever. I will always believe in humanity and the power of the human spirit.
