Near or Far

“You know, it was Alexandr Solzhenitsyn who said there are really two standards by which we judge events in the world: Whether they are near or whether they are far.  Even the most catastrophic human suffering can be what he called a tolerable disaster of bearable proportions if it’s far enough away.”

–Gary Haugen, CEO and President of International Justice Mission (IJM), from DVD Not For Sale
