Take A Look At Some Local Flooding

This Saturday August 9th 8-9 PM on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland we consider ‘Are some lives worth more than others?’ The opening of the United States Declaration of Independence states: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." But are we all equal or in fact are some lives worth more than others? Do we weigh the brutal death of a child in America in the same way as the death of a child in the Middle East or Africa? There are huge outpourings of public grief at the death of an individual celebrity such as John Lennon or Princess Diana. What engenders this response? Do we value a person’s life more depending on what they have achieved, what part of the world they come from, how much we can relate to them? Is there an unconscious dehumanizing of people in some cases to justify decisions taken or to help us process tragedy?  What do you think? Join us on Saturday!
