A Town without Pity

Of course, thinking and acting for the most vulnerable people shouldn’t be about “pity”. . .maybe compassion, maybe justice, maybe “the right thing to do”. . .

Nailing the self-righteous to their own cross. . .

“A Town without Pity” (Charles Blow, NYT)

(btw, 150 years ago this month, Frederick Douglass met with Lincoln in the White House.  Equal pay for Black soldiers being among the issues discussed. . .”new” ideas like compassion, justice. . .)
