Identity Zero – Cipher in the Snow

Cipher: “Zero. One that has no weight, worth, or influence. Non-entity.

The story about a dead man riding the subway for hours before anyone realized he was dead reminds me of an old story, Cipher in the Snow, about a young kid who had been told he was nothing so many times, by so many people, that he grew to believe them. When he stumbled off the school bus to collapse and die in a snowbank, nobody really cared.

How tragic it is that any of us would dismiss another human being as worthless or good for nothing. How sad that any person would have to go through life thinking that he or she was a zero.

When we all realize that every human being is of infinite worth, that every human Identity is eternal, we would all be more civil with each other.
