I have been struggling a little with this challenge, trying to come to grips with what HUMANITY means to me.

Per definition HUMANITY is the collective of human kind but also the quality of being human: brotherly love, compassion, kindness, sympathy, tolerance, pity, tenderness, generosity, mercy benevolence … just to name a few.

But being human also means eventually dying, leaving those behind that care, that love us. And that is why one part of being human, of showing our HUMANITY is how we commemorate our dead. How we what top remember them and show the rest of the world what we have lost.
