Join a Twitter Q&A on Climate Change and the Cost of Inaction

Climate change is not a distant threat – we're already experiencing its harmful impacts. That's why President Obama has taken action to cut carbon pollution by moving to cleaner sources of energy and improving the energy efficiency of our cars, trucks, and buildings. But further steps are urgently needed to ensure that we leave our kids a planet that’s not polluted or damaged.

Today, the White House released a new report from the Council of Economic Advisers that breaks down the economic consequences of delaying action to combat climate change. The report finds that delaying policy actions by a decade increases total climate change mitigation costs by about 40%, and failing to take any action would risk substantial economic damage.

So how will this affect you and your community? Jason Furman, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, is taking to Twitter to answer your questions. Today, July 29 at 2:30 p.m. ET, join him for a Twitter Q&A on the economic impacts of climate change on his Twitter handle, @CEAChair.

Here's what you need to know:

  • Ask your questions now and during the live event on Twitter with the hashtag #WHClimateChat
  • Follow the Q&A live through the @CEAChair Twitter handle
  • If you miss the live Q&A, the full session will be posted on WhiteHouse.gov and Storify.com/whitehouse

Learn more about President Obama's plan to combat climate change at WhiteHouse.gov/climate-change, and then join Jason Furman, @CEAChair, for a Twitter chat today, July 29, at 2:30 p.m. ET.

Proposed GOP Lawsuit Against Obama Backfires, Helps Democrats Raise Millions

WASHINGTON — The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised $ 1 million in a single day on Monday, chairman Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) said. The fundraising juggernaut was driven by Democratic opposition to a lawsuit House Republicans intend to file against President Barack Obama related to the enforcement of certain Obamacare provisions.

“Since the announcement of the lawsuit, we’ve raised more than $ 7.6 million,” Israel said at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. The committee has received more than 160,000 donations, Israel said, and the average donation amount is $ 19.

On Monday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) published an op-ed defending the GOP lawsuit plan. Obama “has overstepped his constitutional authority,” Boehner wrote, by twice extending the Affordable Care Act’s deadline for large employers to provide health coverage for their workers.

For Israel and the Democrats, the most important number, however, may be 74,000 — the number of first-time contributors to the committee in recent weeks. Israel confirmed what many on Capitol Hill suspected: The prospect of legal action by the GOP against the president is a powerful tool for mobilizing Democratic campaign donors, who strongly oppose the lawsuit.

Prominent Democrats have also successfully woven together the Obamacare lawsuit with a rumored House GOP plan to file impeachment proceedings against the president. The latter is a prospect that numerous top Republicans have rejected, and that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Tuesday was a baseless “scam started by Democrats at the White House.” Nonetheless, incoming House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” refused to rule out possible impeachment proceedings.

As long as the specter of impeachment hangs over the Capitol, Democrats probably will continue to capitalize on the widespread public opposition to impeachment.

Charles Myrick ,the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not for profits,hospitals,schools,churches,etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured,under insured,and seniors deal with the high cost of prescription drugs.

The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs. They also possess no eligibility requirements, no forms to fill out, or expiration date as well .One card will take care of a whole family. Also note that the ACRX cards will come to your organization already pre-activated .The cards are good at over 50k stores from Walgreen, Wal mart, Eckerd”s, Kmart, Kroger, Publix, and many more. Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072. Please include name (if organization please include organization and contact name),mailing address,designate Spanish or English,amount of cards requested,and telephone number.

American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible. It should be noted that while many other organizations and companies place a cost on their money saving cards, American Consultants Rx does not believe a cost should be applied, just to assist our fellow Americans. American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

Daily Meditation: Dare To Be

We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these daily meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today’s meditation features a prayer written by the explorer Sir Francis Drake as he embarked on a journey. The notion of asking God to “disturb us” can remind us of the perils of contentment, particularly when so much more of ourselves is waiting to be expressed.

jump

Disturb Us, Lord by Sir Francis Drake

Disturb us, Lord, when
We are too pleased with ourselves,
When our dreams have come true
Because we dreamed too little,
When we arrived safely
Because we sailed too close to the shore.

Disturb us, Lord, when
With the abundance of things we possess
We have lost our thirst
For the waters of life;
Having fallen in love with life,
We have ceased to dream of eternity
And in our efforts to build a new earth,
We have allowed our vision
Of the new Heaven to dim.

Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly,
To venture on wilder seas
Where storms will show Your mastery;
Where losing sight of land,
We shall find the stars.

We ask you to push back
The horizons of our hopes;
And to push back the future
In strength, courage, hope, and love.

This we ask in the name of our Captain,
Who is Jesus Christ.

How Your Appearance Is Affecting Your Behavior

We care a lot about our physical appearance. In 2008, Americans spent over 200 billion dollars on their physical appearance even though they were going through one of the worst recessions in the history of the United States. And, today, records indicate that people spend more money on grooming than on reading material.

Researchers have previously suggested that people care about their appearance because of the lipstick effect: During times of economic recession, women are more likely to purchase products that boost their attractiveness, with the hope that the use of such products would attract potential partners with economic resources.

But caring about how one looks doesn’t only apply to women; men care about their physical appearance as well. In our research, we investigated another reason: People care about their physical appearance because it is tied to their perceptions of their social status. Specifically, we predicted that when people think that they are more physically attractive, they believe that they belong to a higher social class, independent of their actual level of physical attractiveness and objective social status. And the reverse is also true: When people think that they are less physically attractive, they believe they belong to a lower social class.

Past research suggests that individuals assess their subjective social class by evaluating how much wealth and education they have relative to others. In our research, we found that people also infer their social class based on subtle social cues, such as their beliefs about their physical appearance. For example, when we asked participants to write about instances in which they thought they were attractive, they reported that they belonged to a relatively higher social class. By contrast, when we asked participants to write about instances in which they thought they were less attractive, they subsequently reported belonging to a relatively lower social class. Importantly, these effects emerged specifically for physical attractiveness; they did not emerge when we asked people to recall instances in which they demonstrated more or less empathy or integrity.

Why does this happen? A lot of this has to do with the fact that physical attractiveness is tied to the concept of privilege and favored social treatment. In society, physical attractiveness confers numerous social advantages. For example, attractive individuals earn substantially more, and are more likely to get hired and promoted in organizations. By contrast, people are generally prejudiced against those who are physically unattractive — they think, for example, that unattractive individuals are less competent and less warm than physically attractive individuals. Moreover, people have a general tendency to think that if someone is physically attractive, then he or she must be part of the elite in society. In our research, we showed that people apply the same inference to themselves. Just as they judge attractive others as relatively higher social class, they judged their own social class as higher to the extent they felt they were physically attractive.

These findings suggest that our perceptions of our physical appearance matter so much to us because we believe that physical attractiveness is one dimension in which society is fundamentally organized. Our cultural preoccupation with physical appearance isn’t simply a narcissistic tendency, but may, in part, reflect our striving for social standing in society.

But the research doesn’t stop there. In our studies, we also found that people’s beliefs about their physical appearance influenced not only their perceptions of their social class but also their subsequent attitudes toward equality. When people thought they were more attractive, they also became more supportive of inequality. For example, they were more supportive using others to get ahead, and were less likely to donate money to the Occupy movement. By contrast, when people thought they were less attractive, they became less supportive of inequality. For example, they were more likely to endorse equality as the ideology for which society should strive. These findings suggest that our beliefs about our physical attractiveness can do more than make us more confident — it can also shape our views about what constitutes a model society.

Margaret Neale is the Adams Distinguished Professor of Management, and Peter Belmi is a doctoral student in organizational behavior at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

Neale and Belmi are co-authors of “Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? Thinking that one is attractive increases the tendency to support inequality.” Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, 124 (2), 133-149.

Batavia’s Graveyard

Batavia’s Graveyard


From the bestselling author of Tulipomania comes Batavia’s Graveyard, the spellbinding true story of mutiny, shipwreck, murder, and survival.It was the autumn of 1628, and the Batavia, the Dutch East India Company’s flagship, was loaded with a king’s ransom in gold, silver, and gems for her maiden voyage to Java. The Batavia was the pride of the Company’s fleet, a tangible symbol of the world’s richest and most powerful commercial monopoly. She set sail with great fanfare, but the Batavia and her gold would never reach Java, for the Company had also sent along a new employee, Jeronimus Corneliszoon, a bankrupt and disgraced man who possessed disarming charisma and dangerously heretical ideas. With the help of a few disgruntled sailors, Jeronimus soon sparked a mutiny that seemed certain to succeed—but for one unplanned event: In the dark morning hours of June 3, the Batavia smashed through a coral reef and ran aground on a small chain of islands near Australia. The commander of the ship and the skipper evaded the mutineers by escaping in a tiny lifeboat and setting a course for Java—some 1,800 miles north—to summon help. Nearly all of the passengers survived the wreck and found themselves trapped on a bleak coral island without water, food, or shelter. Leaderless, unarmed, and unaware of Jeronimus’s treachery, they were at the mercy of the mutineers.Jeronimus took control almost immediately, preaching his own twisted version of heresy he’d learned in Holland’s secret Anabaptist societies. More than 100 people died at his command in the months that followed. Before long, an all-out war erupted between the mutineers and a small group of soldiers led by Wiebbe Hayes, the one man brave enough to challenge Jeronimus’s band of butchers.Unluckily for the mutineers, the Batavia’s commander had raised the alarm in Java, and at the height of the violence the Company’s gunboats sailed over the horizon. Jeronimus and his mutineers would meet an end almost as gruesome as that of

Weekly Wrap Up: Astronauts, “Inversions,” and the VP and a White Board

This week, some astronauts stopped by the White House (hint: think 1969), we talked about "inversions" (more on that later), the President awarded the Medal of Honor, and the Vice President got a marker and white board and gave us a little bit of history on our nation's infrastructure.

Check out what else you may have missed in this week's wrap up.

"You Are Why I Ran for President in the First Place"

Yesterday, President Obama spoke under sunny skies at the Los Angeles Trade-Technical College. He talked about the progress that we've made since he took office and training our workers for a 21st-century economy.

The President called for a new sense of optimism and collective patriotism in this country: "Cynicism is a choice, and hope is a better choice. And if we can work together, I promise you there's no holding America back."

He also talked about something known as "inversions." What's an "inversion," you ask? Learn more here.

Marijuana Legalization Could Be Causing Increase In Homeless Young People In Denver: Officials

DENVER (AP) — Officials at some Denver homeless shelters say the legalization of marijuana has contributed to an increase in the number of younger people living on the city’s streets.

One organization dealing with the increase is Urban Peak, which provides food, shelter and other services to homeless people aged 15 to 24 in Denver and Colorado Springs. “Of the new kids we’re seeing, the majority are saying they’re here because of the weed,” deputy director Kendall Rames told The Denver Post (http://dpo.st/1l1vQER ). “They’re traveling through. It is very unfortunate.”

The Salvation Army’s single men’s shelter in Denver has been serving more homeless this summer, and officials have noted an increase in the number of 18- to 25-year-olds there.

The shelter housed an average of 225 each night last summer, but this summer it’s averaging 300 people per night. No breakdown was available by age, but an informal survey found that about a quarter of the increase was related to marijuana, including people who moved hoping to find work in the marijuana industry, said Murray Flagg, divisional social services secretary for the Salvation Army’s Intermountain Division.

Some of the homeless have felony backgrounds that prevent them from working in pot shops and grow houses, which are regulated by the state, Flagg said. He also thinks others may find work but don’t earn enough to pay rent in Denver’s expensive housing market.

At the St. Francis Center, a daytime homeless shelter, pot is the second most frequently volunteered reason for being in Colorado, after looking for work.

St. Francis executive director Tom Leuhrs also sees an economic reason for the increase of the number of homeless young people. They’re having difficulty moving from high school and college to the workforce, Leuhrs said.

“The economy is not supporting them. There are not enough jobs,” he said.

Edward Madewell said he was on his way back home to Missouri when he decided to head to Colorado so he could keep smoking the marijuana he uses to control seizures. “I’m not going to stop using something organic. I don’t like the pills,” he said.

Dusty Taylor, 20, said he moved back to Colorado, where he grew up, to avoid legal problems. “I don’t want to catch a felony for smoking,” he said.

The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs.

Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072.

American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible. It should be noted that while many other organizations and companies place a cost on their money saving cards, American Consultants Rx does not believe a cost should be applied, just to assist our fellow Americans. American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

Rich and Miserable? Pursue Riches but Don’t Lose Your Soul!

There was a time in my life when I had plenty of money and was alone in a big house — OK, I didn’t have millions, but certainly enough to do some damage. I believe in making money and having an abundance of what you need and want, so just a heads up, this isn’t a blog about selling your material possessions and wandering the countryside. This is a blog about living a fantastic life.

While I am currently in the process of rebuilding my wealth and looking forward to the next time I can buy a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes, I must say I am the happiest I have ever been. I filed bankruptcy, I nearly lost my home and the concept of a savings account is about as foreign to me as the Chinese language: Wū lòu piān féng lián yè yǔ (when it rains, it pours).

A friend of mine once called me when he was in attendance at a dinner party in the Miami Beach home of a famous rapper who will go unnamed. The home had all the accoutrements of someone who was wealthy — Dolce Gabbana towels, designer glassware, you name it. It was the year 2009 and the occasion was Thanksgiving. My friend was merely an acquaintance in the same industry as this rap mogul, not a good friend. How disconnected from life do you have to be to live like that?

When you have money and live an empty existence, you can throw extravagant parties to distract you from your deeper self (when no longer empty you can throw extravagant parties to celebrate and connect with humanity). You can justify your actions with elaborate philosophies that rationalize your behavior — “I am so above the norm, so unique, that I need not follow tradition.” I am all for creating your own rituals, celebrations, and unique ways of living your life. But to surround yourself by adoring fans or practical strangers on a family holiday reeks to me of insecurity, of cloaking yourself behind your designer stuff, of avoiding the toughest face in the room… the man (or woman) in the mirror.

King Louis XIV of France, also known as the Sun King, allegedly claimed “L’Etat, c’est moi” (I am the State). During his reign, France was a leading European power, yet he suffered from tremendous physical ailments including diabetes. He was one of the most powerful Kings in the world, however, his legs smelled so badly that members of the court could smell him from down the hall. He indulged himself in excessive food, calories and alcohol that exacerbated his lack of well-being. He had a version of power, but he had no peace.

In the bible, Mark 8:36, it states: “For what shall it profit a woman, if she shall gain the whole world, and lose her own soul?” In the United States we have an obsession with celebrity and wealth. I am here to tell you many of them will die not knowing what the meaning of life is, never having healed their wounds, never going extended periods of time feeling a true enjoyment of life. Just like the rap mogul, just like Louis XIV, they seem all powerful, yet what they possess is dust – the sands of time and money, the grains passing through their fingers, yet in the end all we have is our contribution to the world and our souls.

Like 50 Cent, I intend to “Get Rich or Die Tryin” (and no he isn’t the rapper I previously referenced). But what has changed is my definition of wealth. Money is great. I like material things, but I do not want to sit in a big house surrounded by piles of money, all alone (and yes, you can sit alone in a studio apartment without the piles of money too). I’ve always said, I’d better be surrounded by good friends, only positive people, and have my health, inner peace and time to enjoy them. After all, it might be true that ‘yǒu qián néng shǐ guǐ tuī mò’ (money talks), but in life all you have is time. And once your time is up, all the money in the world cannot save you.

Sharon Stone On Surviving Her Brain Aneurysm: ‘I Was Burned To The Ground’ (VIDEO)

In 2001, actress Sharon Stone says she was knocked over with a pain was so severe, she felt as if she had been shot in the head. In her “Oprah’s Master Class” interview, Stone recalls the terrifying details of her near-death experience.

“I called my mom and I said, ‘Mom, I’m calling you from the emergency room…I’m having a brain hemorrhage,’” she says in the above clip from the episode.

Stone says the brain aneurysm changed everything for her and ushered in a dark period that ultimately gave her a new outlook on life. “I had to learn to walk, hear, write, talk, remember and everything all over again,” she says.

“I thought that I was dying for a long time, even after I came home.”

In the years that followed, her life came apart at the seams. In 2004, Stone and her husband Phil Bronstein divorced. In 2008, he was granted full custody of their son.

“There was a part of me that felt like wow, I lost so much,” Stone says. “My career was basically over, my family was over, I got divorced, my child was taken away — a lot of my identity, I thought.”

“I got down, down to it,” she says. “And when I got down to it, it’s like being a phoenix. I was burned to the ground. Because everything I had been before, I thought, ‘I’m not any of those things anymore.’”

Losing everything was like a death, she says. “But it’s not a bad thing. You know, death isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Everything got richer for me through this experience. Everything got better for me through this experience.”

“It was like starting over,” she says. “Every death is a rebirth.”

“Oprah’s Master Class” airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on OWN.

Upskill America: Creating Pathways to the Middle-Class

This week, the President visited Los Angeles Trade Technical College to deliver a clear message: we need to train more hard-working Americans to fill the jobs our businesses are creating. The President explained:

I’m here for every American who works their tail off; who does everything right; who believes in the American Dream and just wants a chance to build a decent life for themselves and their families. You are why I ran for President in the first place. 

In his 2014 State of the Union address, the President tasked Vice President Biden with leading a review of job training programs, with the aim of making them more job-driven. That review is complete and earlier this week, the President and Vice President announced significant reforms in the way Federal programs train and retrain workers.

As a result of this review, the Administration is kicking off a significant new public-private effort to help hard-working Americans get ahead through an initiative we are calling “upskilling”: working with employers, educators, tech innovators, unions, training providers, cities, states, and non-profits to help turn low-wage and entry-level jobs across the country into stepping stones to the middle class.

How I Became Interested In The Death Penalty And Why I’m Against It

Since I wrote my last piece on the death penalty, “Hey, Arizona, Next Time Try Scaphism,” I’ve been asked why I care so much about it and why it angers me so much. I am angry because I have lived in a country that abolished it without descending into anarchy, and met Americans who transcended the violence of it even though they were the relatives of murder victims.

I first got involved while writing a script for Warner Brothers. It had been inspired by, and was intended for, Al Pacino, who wanted to do a modern version of Othello. I suggested making the antagonists lawyers on opposite sides of a death penalty trial. Jealousy would so undermine one that he’d be incapable of saving his client. I suppose the very fact that this was the story I wanted to tell (and did tell, though the film never got made) suggests I was already opposed to execution. How can flawed human beings take on the work of “God”? But despite this seeming bias, I went into the research with only a mild bias. It was not something I’d thought a lot about.

I met many people on all sides of the issue, judges, lawyers, killers, families of killers, and the families of the killed. I came out the other side 100% convinced the death penalty was not just barbaric but absolutely pointless.

Ironically, the first thing that became clear to me was that the people who suffered most as a result of it were the friends and families of murder victims.

When the State goes for life or life without parole, the case is quickly disposed of, the killer goes to prison, and the families begin trying to come to terms with the loss, the sorrow. If the State goes for the death penalty, however, its irreversibility dictates numerous appeals. (Anyone who doubts this should be so, might want to visit the Innocence Project website and check out some of the “killers” exonerated by them.)

Because of this, more time passes for the families before the legal aspects can be put behind them. Instead of grieving, they become invested in “winning”, in getting the execution carried out. Consciously or not, they start thinking this will bring relief. But when the execution happens, another life ends, but nothing is won, nothing changes. The victim is brought back to life only in the sense that memories of the worst part of his or her life – the horror of its end – are dredged up again.

Years have gone by, but only now – with this nasty resolution behind them – does the grieving process finally begin.

The death penalty keeps rage alive at the expense of acceptance, peace.

Weirdly illustrative of this was a woman I met whose teenage daughter was murdered. The killer, a miserable drifter and junky, snuffed the girl out while high. He received the death penalty and the appeals process began. Some years went by and the woman was propelled onward through her life by her hatred and longing for revenge. But one day she could take it no more. She was driving and suddenly it hit her: I cannot live like this.

When she got home she wrote a short note to the killer saying, “You took away everything I loved, you ruined me, but I want you to know that I forgive you.” Having sent the letter, she felt an immense relief. She had escaped a kind of domination. She began to remember her child’s life as a whole, defined not just by one ghastly encounter, one horrific moment, but also by years of joy and struggle and all the other elements that add up to a whole person, an existence however abbreviated.

But it did not end here. The killer wrote back. He explained who he was and how circumstances had kicked and shoved him to the moment where he killed her child. The letter was long and lucid and, just as she had with her child, she saw she could not confine his existence, his humanity, to a single moment. There was more to him. He could not remember killing her daughter, he was too high, but he didn’t doubt that he had done it and expressed deep remorse.

They continued to write to each other, and though the death of her daughter became no less sad, though she missed her no less, her death ceased to seem so existentially unjust and mysterious. It was no longer the consequence of inexplicable evil, it was part of thousands of impulses and failures that by chance had reached lethality when they arrived at her child.

The more she learned about the killer, the more she began to see him as a victim too. When she remembered her daughter, it was not just as the young woman who was killed, but also as the baby she gave birth to, the child she raised. So too with the killer. Unsurprisingly, his childhood had been horrific. If he ever stood a chance, it was a slim one. His life began in horror and now it would end in horror. She decided to try and get him off death row. When I met her she’d been trying for several years.

I know that a lot of people will ridicule her for having “fallen” for a killer’s self-serving story; but no child’s first ambition is to end up on death row having killed an innocent person. Clearly something went wrong between the baby’s first breath and his last vicious act.

During my research, I met another woman I admired, a lawyer whose only job was to represent her state’s death row inmates in their final appeals. To do this, she had to extract their life stories from them and then check the details against known facts before bringing them to the court and begging for mercy. She had done this for many men. I asked her if she’d ever met one who seemed so evil she didn’t think he deserved mercy.

“No,” she replied immediately, “I can’t imagine if I’d had any one of their lives that I could possibly have done any better. In fact, I probably would have done a lot worse.”

It is easier to dismiss someone as being “evil” than to face the tangle of social failures that we’re all complicit in. It’s easier to hate the adult than to ask what made a child grow up wanting oblivion and finding fulfillment in a killing. It’s easier to mock and jeer and to kill than to try and understand, but it is cowardly and weak and will change nothing.
