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.
After all, Jean Paul once said, “Humanity is never so beautiful as when praying for forgiveness, or else forgiving another.”
