Better or Broken?

We think that the progress of society somehow means better–better me, better you, better job.  But even with all that society can accomplish, we can’t seem to solve the big problems facing humanity.  We can genetically modify seeds to produce endless amounts of corn, yet people still die of hunger every day.  We can harvest stem cells and perform embryonic research, but disease continues to ravage humanity.  We can connect with anyone on the planet, but we still suffer from depression and loneliness.  We can amass billions of dollars, yet our cities swell with the homeless and impoverished.  People still murder and get sick and leaves their spouses.  Society could build a tower that reaches the moon if it wanted, but it will never mend all the broken pieces of the human race.
