To Thirst and to Cry

“Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.” Genesis‬ ‭2:7‬
The word “being” in the Hebrew is “nephesh” literally “throat.” A “throat” can thirst and cry. To be a “being” is to be capable of thirsting and crying. To need and warrant love, compassion and help is at the core of being human. When we ignore the thirsts and cries of our sisters and brothers we say that we have “dehumanized them.” But they have not become less human. We have.
