Politics with Compassion
"How are the preparations coming along for the new administration?" Stevie asked the governor-elect. "Very well, thank you. Robert is working extremely hard to get us ready for the inauguration—too hard, in fact. He'll probably miss Christmas." Stevie nodded. That sounded like Robert.
"So I suppose your team is already busy working on legislation." "Yes. But thanks to you, we're now much more sensitive to the people for whom the laws are written. We'll strive for morality and justice in North California without forgetting to be compassionate and merciful. I will be forever grateful that you helped me see that important balance."
