As we begin gaining awareness of the 'human-ness' of our former role models, let us remember that none are perfect, except for the Divine.
Our heroes are fallible men & women just like ourselves. To say there is much grey in the world is not to diminish Idealism.
We can honor the memories of others' finest hours, while at the same time forgiving their moments of weakness or ignorance.
We must hold ourselves and others to the highest of standards, yet only allow He who is without sin to sit on the throne of judgement.
As citizens, we are charged to forgive others, and to support those granted positions of earthly authority.
Whenever power is misused, we are responsible to perform our personal efforts to peacefully & meekly uphold the Rule of Divine Law.
Prayer is a powerful force.
