Now live with yourself.

Take your deepest, most profound belief. Take the moral code you hold most dear. Now smash that down onto cement and watch the shattered pieces skitter across the pavement. Because of your actions, children break and fall to the ground. Grandmothers die. Men bleed and scream. There is no one else to blame, you carry the entire burden, or at least that’s what you think. You did this. YOU. As completely as a human being can believe, you know that you’ve sinned. On the most basic of levels, you know you are no longer good.
