2. Thanks. So true.

And so often, we do not realize when we ourselves begin to cross the line into banal indifference to the suffering of someone else.

We may not be cruel. We may not begin to approach the cruelty of the NAZIs. But we easily judge the cruelty of others and tend to find our own, granted much less harmful cruelty completely acceptable. In fact, we all need to be careful about how we treat and view others at all times. We judge so easily without knowing all the facts.

There is no justification for hating others, especially if the hate is based on their nationality or race or religious affiliation. You can disagree with them. But hatred brings us into dangerous territory.
