Moved by this extract from Georgia's Hunter's book, especially as another thread referring to "the wrong kind of refugee" has just reached its 1000th comment.
Doing the right thing means recognising human need and responding to it with compassion but also with pragmatism. The nuns and peasants Georgia refers to did not just sympathise with the plight of the Jews they encountered, they acted with a clear purpose...and they took a risk, knowing full well what the personal dangers were.
It is sad that today, doing the right thing seems to often be interpreted as helping ourselves rather than helping others in need.
