Human Being

"Chief Buffalo" Water Color on Paper 2018 John Zender 9 X11 inches.

Is man higher than the beast?
Is our being an act of self determining reason?
is it our thoughts and reason that raise us above the animals?

Or do the atrocities we impose on others lower us to mere beast. 

My Son was interested in what happened to the Native American? I followed with a " son be prepared to confront some unfortunate realities."
I explained that through out history mankind has manifested a need for power, control and ownership. Sometimes these ambitions can lead to atrocities. What changes the heart of mankind, What is the distinction between the living soul, the physical body and the manifestations of the spirit. To be a complete Human Being. (A term often used by native American tribes).
