Sympathy for all

It’s your right to be upset, alarmed and angry when you witness a crime against a defenceless individual. But step back and take stock before you take it as a reason to foment sectarian and communal strife. The level of violent crime and sexual assaults on our public transport networks is frightening and unacceptable, but it serves to highlight than anybody can be a victim and anyone can be a perpetrator. We should have sympathy for all victims, not only those we share something in common with. We need to build a better society for all.
