73. How To Talk About Tragedy

We have a problem in our society of standing on the bodies of innocent victims and placing blame. Instead, we should do the right thing: pray for the families, allow them to mourn in peace and quiet, and not demagogue on policy while the bodies are still warm.

“Sometimes I am asked if I know ‘the response to Auschwitz; I answer that not only do I not know it, but that I don’t even know if a tragedy of this magnitude has a response.”

-Elie Wiesel

Today we’ll talk about what’s wrong with what we do, how to do it better, and how to handle people who are using this as a political club.
