Aaron Swartz

I have been an emotional mess lately!

First the fire at the club in Brazil, resulting in the death of almost 250 people. Looking at photos, thinking of the amount of people grieving and affected, imagining being in that situation... I cried, and prayed.

Today, for homework, I was researching Aaron Swartz. I didn't know anything about him, but I'm in awe of him, his talent, his courage.

I think this article is fantastic, I love how he doesn't deny that what Aaron Swartz did, if he did it, was wrong, but he recognizes the need for grace, and keeping things in proportion. If the hope is taken away from someone, if it looks like there is no point, something is wrong.
