1 Minute Speech on Humanity In English

Good morning to one and all present here. Today, I’ll be giving a short speech on the topic ‘Humanity’. 

Humanity has a dual meaning. Firstly, humanity merely refers to the human race as a whole collectively. The second definition, however, is more important.

Google defines this meaning of humanity as “the quality of being humane; benevolence”. Thus, humanity involves being sympathetic, empathetic, and kind.

This humanity is, in fact, what distinguishes us as human beings. After all, being humane is a characteristic unique to humans. It thus involves displaying emotions such as love, compassion, concern, and thoughtfulness towards fellow human beings. 

Displaying humanity is an essential quality thus. We must never be cruel and unkind to other human beings, especially when they are in need of dire help or are in a position where there are unable to do certain things and are less fortunate. Giving a helping hand to them is a virtue that each and every one of us must aim to possess.

Thank you.
