According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four legs, four arms and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them apart, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other half.


Selfishness is overtaking all of us.
Less fortunate countries do exist in this cruel, harsh world.
Not everyone has clean water to drink;
neither does everyone have edible food to eat.
What if you were constantly famished,
or had nowhere to go?
Think about it,
and decide for yourself if the life that you live is inevitably tragic,
or if you make it that way.
