Reflection 4.3.16

As Americans we have a rich history of both heroes and villains. If we cultivate the compassionate understanding that even the ‘worst’ people are undoubtedly doing the best that they know, and that this ‘knowing’ is often seized by ignorance, suffering, and fear, we can learn from them all.

~Alice Walker, from We are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For
