The rest of the world would do well to listen, but sadly too many are still stuck in a most elementary expression of contempt for the people who are suffering in this country. Elected and appointed leaders, judges and policymakers who fail to look beneath the surface. It’s a ruinous perspective they have and one that prolongs the suffering. We cannot win every heart or open every mind.
I thought of this as I read something that reminds us all of our responsibility:
But if the watchman sees the enemy coming and doesn’t sound the alarm to warn the people, he is responsible for their captivity. They will die in their sins, but I will hold the watchman responsible for their deaths.
