How many of us know someone who suffers from mental illness or committed suicide, compare to members of minority groups fleeing from ISIS?.
While I'm following the news coming from Iraq, it didn't affect me as much as learning someone who's comedy touch my life, committing suicide. I've lost friends who could no longer face each day under depression's dark cloud and been almost there myself before I got help. I can help those around me who suffer from depression, I don't have the power or resources to help those fleeing ISIS.

"England needs, examples of people who, leaving Heaven to decide whether they are to rise in the world, decide for themselves that they will be happy in it, and have resolved to seek, not greater wealth, but simpler pleasures; not higher fortune, but deeper felicity; making the first of possessions self-possession, and honouring themselves in the harmless pride and calm pursuits of peace." - John Ruskin
