How little it takes to shatter the veneer of civilization

A few days without power turns a boatload of reveling vacationers into raving mobs of looting thieves. Certainly, being trapped on a ship sweltering in your own filth doesn’t do much for one’s sanity. One should keep this incident in mind when we sit back on our high horses and point our fingers at war-torn countries and call anyone ‘uncivilized’ or ‘savage’. I don’t think we’d do much better if the tables were turned.

Food for thought, and perhaps a sad statement on the nature of humanity.

We can only hope there are enough people out there who can rise above and make the world a better place.
