All men are interdependent. Every nation is an heir of a vast treasury of ideas and labor to which both the living and the dead of all nations have contributed.
Whether we realise is or not, each of us lives eternally ‘in the red’. We are everlasting debtors to known and unknown men and women.
When we arise in the morning we go into the bathroom where we reach for a sponge which is provided for us by a Pacific Islander. We reach for soap that is created for us by a European. Then at the table we drink coffee which is provided for us by a South American, or tea by a Chinese, or cocoa by a West African.
Before we leave for our jobs we are already beholden to more than half of the world.
Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.
