2. This....is a hard one.

I do struggle with finding a sort of balance. Often, I find myself wondering.....where to even start with the bully. You can find all kinds of examples in scriptural text that will justify any number of reactions. How is one to know what to do?
I personally seek the good and beauty in all of my fellow man. I actively, as a testament of my faith and rearing, try to look past the faults of others to instead recognize their hurt and pain. I am determined to stay on this path but it is getting harder by the ....tweet.
I see bullying on all forums and in every place under the sun. I'm just not sure that compassion and changing hearts and minds is the way to go. No, we must change policy.
If we had waited on the bullies of the south to see the error of their ways and change their hearts toward their black neighbors, we'd still have american apartheid as law.
Thanks for posting this. It's beautifully written.
