People just like you

Look at all these people in the world.
There are just so many.
Eight billion, roughly. Increasing as we speak.
Wow. Amazing, right?
Each one has a unique story.

Their own individuality.
Their own loved ones.
Their own passions.
Their own needs.
Their own desires.
Their own hopes.
Their own dreams.
Their own fears.
Their own regrets.
Their own thoughts.
Their own feelings.

All of them live and have their own lives, just like you do.
They are people just like you.

Why is it then that we live in this world as if some lives are more important than other lives?
