A reflection piece on current events

“Bullies, oppressors and all men who do violence to the rights of others are guilty not only of their own crimes, but also of the corruption they bring into the hearts of their victims.”

The words and message of Meryl Streep echo the very same reminder that abuse of power holds grave consequences, not only for the people victim to the abuse, but for all of us.   If he were alive today, Manzoni would have surely applauded Ms. Streep’s declaration.
