We may be a generation of cynics, but sometimes things happen that remind us of our humanity and give us a small sliver of hope.

While Argentina was still in shock about the news of Cristina’s health condition and her impending surgery yesterday, the following message was posted on the unofficial Twitter account of the Malvinas (Falkland) Islands:

Yeah, that’s highly noble of them. Even though the Twitter account @falklands_utd is not verified and does not represent the Malvinas/Falklands government, it became very popular and the de facto representative of the islands’ population last year during the referendum held by the islanders.

So, noblesse oblige: on behalf of the Argentine population we would like to thank you, people from the Falklands, for your message of support. Our differences may continue but, just like you said, #HumanityFirst.
