Day 2488: Who are we?

In previous posts, I’ve posed the bloggy questions “Who am I?,” “What am I?” and “Where am I?”

Today, I’m going more global with “Who are we?” because

  • every new story and news story I read these days implies, to me, this question about the current state of humanity and
  • I took this photo yesterday.


Who are we?  Are we

  • factions of humans who never agree?
  • a species who can bond together over a common goal?
  • violent?
  • kind?
  • selfish?
  • empathic?
  • hating?
  • loving?
  • capable of change?
  • doomed?
  • serious?
  • ridiculous?
  • leaders?
  • followers?
  • thinkers?
  • feelers?
  • wise?
  • stupid?
  • enemies?
  • friends?
  • hopeless?
  • hopeful?
  • memorable?
  • capable of remembering?

Are we ready for my other photos from yesterday?







I don’t know if I’ll remember the Alamo, but I’ll always remember Deb Carmichael.

Here’s Who are We? by The Dixie Hummingbirds.

How would you answer today’s bloggy question?  Who are we?

Are we grateful?  I am, for all those who help me create this daily blog, including YOU.

  1. Thank you for treating us so well, Ann.

  2. I will get back to you on that one..😊

  3. Who we are is such a complex question because we’re capable of such great goodness and such terrible things, which is why most days I’m not even sure who I am.

  4. “We” are the people who blame “them” for everything. “They” are the ones who should do something about “it”. Why don’t “we” and “they” get together as “us” and then “we” can sort it out!

  5. We are humans in good and less good, Ann. We need to remember, that we have the choice, how to be and behave.

    This fundamental question made me think of RenΓ© Descartes’ famous phrase, ” Cogito Ergo Sum” .
    I would like to believe we are basically good in search for reason to define us. Everyday is a learning process. But, I don’t think we can answer this with a few words.. It merits a decent philosophical answer/

  7. “I have enough trouble working out who I am to worry about the rest of you” might be my tongue in cheek answer

  8. I’m afraid my answer to this question could change from minute to minute! I do think we, if defined as Americans, are ignorant of world history. I think we’re paying for that lack of knowledge and short memories. I think our international friends are generally better educated. But I basically agree with Derrick. I do have my hands full with just me! πŸ™‚

    • Michael told me yesterday that Gore Vidal called us “The United States of Amnesia.” I’m glad I didn’t forget to share that with you today, Debra.
