Extraordinary video and a truly holy little girl.
Back to that book about the spiritual roots of protest. Merton says that the contemplative roots of protest had to be motivated "not only by outrage but by compassion for those who, driven by fear or a warped patriotism, experience themselves as objects of protest” (from the Foreword by Jim Forest).
That sounds very much like what Ruby Bridges was doing to me.
