It seems as if the human race is becoming more polarized by the day. Different ethnic groups are supposed to hate each other as are different religious or political groups. We can't seem to see past these minor man made differences to see that we are all people with the same hopes and dreams and that by working together we might actually achieve them more easily.
The animal world, which we like to put down as being inferior to humans, seems to be making progress in caring about their neighbors in need.
