You know, this sounds really mushy-gushy and New Agey, but hate is just such a pointless thing. People will do bad things, maybe even terrible things, but most of the time, the things they do are totally understandable, when you look at who that person is, their situation, their context. Everyone may not be created equal, but no one was ever created perfect, either. We all have our flaws to overcome and our own crap to deal with, and sure, we make mistakes, but ultimately, most people are just trying their best.
I don't know. But the more I look at someone's situation and the stakes for them, the less able I am to look negatively at them or judge them.
