What Does It Mean to Humble One's Self ?

The search for an answer to my question has taken me through scores of responses. I have come to the following conclusion: Humbling one's self means recognizing and accepting that everyone is of equal value; recognizing and accepting that no one is more worthy or more significant than another.

Your Problem is My Problem - My Problem is Your Problem

“It is often easier to become outraged by injustice half a world away than by oppression and discrimination half a block from home.” -- Carl T. Rowan
