Found this exceptionally profound this week... A dialogue from the TV show Scandal. They were talking of government and conspiracy and cover-up and rescue... but oh, how this resonated in the way the last few weeks have been with my kids. Some of you will get this. Some will be shocked and appalled that I would relate it in this way. But since this blog is partially for my own memories... I'm putting it here anyway.
“If there are no white hats, if everyone is evil, if the deck is always stacked, if everyone I love is a monster, if no one is worth saving, what is the point?”
... “There is, incidentally, a point. If there are no more white hats, if the deck is always stacked and if everyone you love is a monster, there is in fact someone worth saving.”
“Everyone! Everyone is worth saving. Even the monsters, even the demons. Everyone is worth saving. In the face of darkness, you drag everyone into the light. That is the point. At least I’d like to think that is the point. Of you.”
