If not us, then who?

James Adcock left these thoughts on the Sightline blog (paraphrased):

1) Even tiny little partial successes represent saving millions of human beings from death or untold suffering, including watching their children die of starvation, heat stroke, or lack of water.

2) The morality of one’s actions is not dependent on the morality, or lack thereof, of one’s neighbors. Living a moral life is NOT a sacrifice. Rather, it is a privilege.

3) SOMEONE has to speak the truth in a democracy. It’s not going to be the politicians, and it certainly hasn’t been the news media. SOMEONE has to speak the truth. How about if it be YOU?
