We as human beings tend to identify with anything that connects us to our beliefs or religions. Culturally, people are attached to the things we’ve been taught to love.

The Cathedral of Notre Dame is a stellar example of how people worry about an earthly structure that can be rebuilt, in a world where historical landmarks of both synthetic and natural  are destroyed almost every day, ignored and sometimes even celebrated.

In 360: Notre-Dame cathedral before the fire – BBC News

What happened when indigenous land was destroyed for pipelines? When bombs were dropped over the Middle East or Africa? buildings, artifacts, hell – lives as well, lost forever with no global call to action.

At the time of publishing, nearly a billion dollars has been raised for the restoration of the Notre Dame – most coming from extremely wealthy donors.

To put this in perspective, Puerto Rico is still struggling to raise money, over a year after natural disaster hit. Flint, Michigan is still without clear drinking water, years after the problem was exposed. Poverty is a global epidemic – with homelessness rife, others struggling to afford the most basic of necessities.

It seems rather foolish now, considering the issues that threaten our lives every single day, when people are more concerned that a replaceable cultural monument tops  human life and the very existence of this planet. Sadly, this is the behavior typical of our species, being the precise reason why we suffer from war, poverty and the endangerment of species.

People worship their culture like a god, forgetting the real threats of their own natural world, fellow human beings, considered slaves, to be controlled.

It’s a real eye opener and proof that humans can show compassion, proving the money needed can be raised rather easily. I mean, it will cost more than a billion dollars to repair this world, but this happened in a measly 24 hours! Imagine what could be accomplished if people reached out to charities, targeting the problems head on which are really a threat to this world.

As an Op-Ed from Carl Kinsella of pointed out, “If two men in a world of more than 7 billion people can provide €300million to restore Notre Dame, within six hours, then there is enough money in the world to feed every mouth, shelter every family and educate every child. The failure to do so is a matter of will, and a matter of system. The failure to do so comes from our failure to recognize the mundane emergencies that claims lives all around us every single day.”

“Everywhere in the world, from Paris to Persepolis, people are suffering. But their suffering is every day. It does not light up a front page, and it does not inspire immediate donations from the world’s wealthiest men,” Kinsella continued.

This failure is proportionately the fault of global media. They shy away from reporting on war, environmental issues, economic issues or anything that could make their sponsors look bad in any form.

People are generally good, the problem arises when they’re led astray by the very cultures they worship.
