Atty Stevenson's decency and compassion is a welcome salve in today's climate. When the proverbial rubber meets the road, it's the simple lessons that are the first to fall away, and the hardest to live by. See each other as human beings; understand that law and justice are not the same thing; recognize when fear—not wisdom—drives action; be clear eyed and honest about the imperfections of society, of the justice system, of the values we hold, and of our selves. This is such an amazing, thoughtful conversation. Thank you both for having it.
