Small things count

I commend to you Jamie Kalven's essay here under the Chicago Tribune umbrella. One key to it is a paragraph he wrote in Slate 5 1/2 years ago:
There are large violent acts. There are no large healing acts. Healing is a matter of small acts of attention and care sustained over time. When men aspire to large healing acts, they generally come up with things like lynchings and wars.
