Did you know that God created us with the intention of equality?
What does that mean?
Well, it means that all humans are worthy of respect. It talks a lot about this in the second creation story.
Oh! So we should treat people equal?
But don't we do this already? Why are you telling me this?
Adriana and Matteo are sitting in their living room. Adriana is telling Matteo about human dignity.
Well you're right, we do. Unfortunately there are a lot of people who don't, even our government! Have you ever heard about the Indigenous Water Crisis?
Come, I'll show you something.
No... what's that?
You know how when we turn on the tap, we can drink that water? Well there are hundreds of Indigenous communities that can't! Their water is dirty and they have to boil it before they use it.
Don't worry, we're trying! The government keeps saying that they'll fix it, but they aren't. That's why so many people are participating in the water crisis movement.
She continues to explain that all humans are worthy of respect. Matteo starts to understand.
What! That's so wrong! Why doesn't anyone do anything about it!
Wow.. Its good that people are protesting, but thats so sad that people are still living like this!
Adriana confirms what Matteo said. Then he says that he thinks that we already show human dignity.
I know! We have to do better for these people.
That sounds like a great idea!
Yeah! Well, thank you for explaining! Maybe one day we should participate in a protest!
Adriana explains that just because they show respect for all, it doesn't mean that everyone else does. She talks about the Indigenous water crisis.
Adriana explains that in many Indigenous communities, they do not have clean running water. Matteo thinks that is very wrong and asks why no one does anything about it. Then Adriana explains about the water crisis movement. Matteo thinks its a good idea, but still says it is sad people are living like this.
Adriana agrees. Matteo thanks her for explaining, and then says that maybe one day they should protest. Adriana agrees.
