I’ve experienced this. 3 times. This is a mini-stroke in process.
I thought I wanted to see justice, and I do. I thought I wanted to see them punished, and I do. I thought I wanted to see them suffer, and now I realize that I don’t want to see that at all.
And this man may be an enemy of the people. He may be a traitor. He may be an evil, evil man – IF the allegations against him are true.
But he’s a fellow human being and he’s suffering. Terribly. And that breaks my heart.
This is not a game, folks. This is real life happening. People are dying in this battle. People are suffering. People, like Jerry Nadler, above, are under so much stress and pressure from incoming indictments that they’re literally stroking out in public.
I used to be angry about what they had allegedly done. I’m not angry anymore. I’m just sad. It’s all so sad. Human beings – my brothers and sisters – are going to suffer.
I wish it didn’t have to be this way. It’s so incredibly sad.
We are commanded, “Justice, justice, you shall pursue” (Deuteronomy 16:20) and I believe we should obey. But it’s not as easy as it sounds. Sometimes, like right now, it can be incredibly difficult.
No matter who you are, no matter who they are, no matter if they are your enemy or the incarnation of evil, please, please, pray for them.
“Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster… for when you gaze long into the abyss. The abyss gazes also into you.” – Friedrich Nietzsche
