In the past week, I've posted about hundreds of thousands of slave children in Haiti, peonage in the U.S. in the 20th Century, a young woman being tortured for five years in an Afghani prison run by the U.S., and now this. Doesn't focusing on the horrible bring people down and make them too scared to do anything about it all?
The poster above, for example, went up less than three weeks after the bodies of Schwerner, Chaney, and Goodman were found. And even today, the work goes on. Mahatma Gandhi said:
"Whenever I despair, I remember that the way of truth and love has always won. There may be tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they may seem invincible, but in the end, they always fail. Think of it: always."
