Humans, first

I just read a local controversial article and as much as the gossiper in me wants to highlight it, the context is unnecessary. So I won't bring the issue up. What I do want to bring up is that we are humans first. 

People tend to forget the fact that pain is pain and blood is blood. Issues like rape and sexual assault are the same everywhere. Whoever does it to whoever else. Wherever it happens. Whenever. Life is life. 

It is so easy to get caught in a nationalist, regionalist, and cult sense before we realize that the pain was felt by another life. 

So before we draw conclusions, before we jump the gun, before we judge, before we spew the harsh words, it is pertinent to remember - life is life. 

Humans, first.
