First off, I hope everybody Merry Christmas. This is a story within a story about forgiveness and tolerance. About the “faith in humanity” that a community had for the murderer of beloved man. The story starts off after a jury acquitted a man because they had “more faith in man than in evidence, material proofs, and speeches for the prosecution…” The story makes me think more of the tolerance of western Europe but neither Russia or America. Overall this was quick, thought provoking piece.
