There are many ways that humans are different from other animals and I have picked what I believe to be the greatest differences of all. A main difference is self-awareness, or the knowledge that we exist by living and dying. Since we know that we will die sooner or later we take care of those who may not be able to take care of themselves to prolong the life if the ones that we love.

So from our opposable thumbs to our upright stance, to the uniqueness of our spirituality or closely knit families we have the power to revive or kill the world as a whole so use that power wisely.
