The suffering of the innocent

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2018

Drop by drop, upon the heart:
This news report in the Washington Post describes the terrible suffering which can be visited upon the innocent, both here and around the world.

Within the modern American context, the details of this terrible story activate an array of themes. Included is the earlier suffering, and damage, visited upon the aggressor.

We thought this local news report was well worth considering today. We'll include the famous passage from Aeschylus, which we've been considering lately:
Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget
falls drop by drop upon the heart
until, in our own despair, against our will,
comes wisdom through the awful grace of God.
"Despite ourselves, wisdom grows." That's how we've always remembered it.

  1. Sad. But why this particular story?

    Oh, got it:
    “Martinez Torres [the perpetrator], who is originally from El Salvador, is suspected of being in the country illegally”

    There were tons of stories about the children separated from their families at the border. The issue Somerby says was not covered by MSNBC, when in reality it was, night after night.

    Even Somerby’s “tears” have an ulterior motive.

    Jackass.

    1. Secure in his/her fearless anonymity, the nameless Jackass tries (and fails) to prove that (s)he knows it’s own kind.
