Where is the humanity?

When people lose their humanity and fail to see others as humans, I don't understand it. How can you look at a human and think, meh, they are just expendable, like the red shirts in star trek. Then this idiot compared Syrian refugees to a bowl of skittles, with some that are poisoned. When you see other humans as things, there is not much hope for compassion, empathy and help.

Women lining up for Winter Kits at Zaatari camp in Jordan
These are humans who's lives got thrown so out of whack by war that they left home with the little bit they have and made it to a refugee camp. These are not candy, they are people. #notskittles.

When I look at these pictures I hope these folks finally get a permanent safe home where them and their family can strive. No one deserves to live in a civil war.
