This is Dick Cheney on 9/11/2001. When I look into his eyes, I see fear, confusion, and the weight of overwhelming responsibility. It’s easy to say, “He is a human who suffers just like I suffer,” but it’s also easy to forget.
This photo is my reminder: Dick Cheney is a human being. He suffers just like we all suffer. He is deserving of compassion just like we all are deserving of compassion. He feels the weight of his actions and his decisions.
