"People who treat other people as less than human, must not be surprised when the bread they have cast on the waters comes floating back to them, poisoned."On the other hand Jimmy, "People who treat people as equally human, must not be surprised when the bread they have cast on the waters comes floating back to them, appreciated!" -- and McNair Elementary School bookkeeper, Antoinette Tuff deserves every bit of appreciation that comes her way after this harrowing experience:
Tears were streaming down my face as I listened to this woman. I cried because of her courage. I cried because of her empathy. I cried because of her humanity. I cried because that boy probably never had anyone in his life who cared enough to say, "It's okay, Baby," or "I love you." And I cried because it was Antoinette Tuff who did. She saved those babies, every single one of them -- and without the NRA's, "Teachers should have guns in every school" foolishness.
Such grace my Sister -- under pressure and after. Considering that, I am certain you are a much better woman than I.
