A Call for Consideration

As anxious anticipation mounts over an important grand jury verdict, let us keep in mind that we are all residents and neighbors of the same community.  Sometimes even the most common of grounds can help bridge respect and positive change.
"There is a tendency in the average citizen, even if he has a high standing in his profession, to consider the decisions relating to the life of the society to which he belongs as a matter of fate on which he has no influence - like the Roman subjects all over the world in the period of the Roman empire, a mood favorable for the resurgence of religion but unfavorable for the preservation of a living democracy." -- Paul Tillich, The Future of Religions
