This mantra is short, but powerful. I was inspired by my mother who not only frequently says this phrase, but also used these words as her poster for the Women’s March 2018. Humankind as a singular unit is vast and inclusive. Human, on its own, is forgiving and flawed. Kind, on its own, is giving and soft. This mantra offers assurance that it is alright to be human, flaws and mistakes included. It also offers advice to recognize and treat others with kindness, as we are all a parcel of a larger whole: humankind.
