Years ago I worked with adults with Developmental Disabilties. During a conversation with one person who was having difficulty mangaing their behavior, I said, "If it's hard then you know you are doing to right thing. The wrong thing is always easy." Over the years I said that a thousand times to students,to my own kids,to myself. Mr. McDonald realized this and he did the right thing. Hatred grows quickly because its easy to fuel. Compassion  grows slowly , but with strength when its tended to. Hate is the weed . Compassion is the tree that bears fruit year after year. Thank you for being wise enough and brave enough to recognize the need to act.
