Man's inhumanity to man . . .
It was Robert Burns who said it.
Just when I begin to worry that I've reached the point where I'm totally dulled to news of violence and senseless killing, because there is so much of it, I read this and feel the tears fill my eyes. I cannot imagine the kind of mind that dreamed up this particular wretched scheme.
The full quote is "Man's inhumanity to man makes countless thousands mourn."
