“This is the first test of a gentleman: his respect for those who can be of no possible value to him” (William Lyon Phelps). Having observed an intoxicated driver hit and instantly kill an innocent young teenage girl as she drove home from work one night was heart-wrenching. The intoxicated individual stumbled out of his car and sat on the curb with a minor physical injury to himself. Caring for offenders that fatally kill, shoot, or stab innocent victims can be challenging. Knowing that people are children of God places different lenses over my eyes, therefore seeing them as potential beacons of light, at times in a dark, dreary, cold and unjust world.
