Will We Ever Learn?

With the fear of a global “Swine Flu” pandemic growing, by what seems like an hourly intervals, I wonder what the chances are that we might learn from rather serious mistakes and change the manner in which we conduct “business?” And with what must be such an absurd question out of the way, I’d like to direct you to a couple of poignant blog entries, I came across today. A Call for Humility and Swine Flu and Empathy.

And while I, as a vegan, am quick to point out a cause, I’m reminded of the greater cost. We’re all at risk;

“The disease itself does not care if you’re a vegan or a meat eater or a saint reincarnated: apart from any genetic predisposition or immunity you may have, you’re just as likely as anyone else to get the flu…”

Please read ’em. Thanks…
