Is it a "Hate Crime" or is it an 'Absence of Love Crime'? Maybe ALL crime is a hate crime. If we are willingly hurting each other, it's at least the ACTION of Hate, even if a person didn't mean to be injurious. Indifference is even worse than hate, in my opinion. I wish that someone were hot or cold than indifferent. Once we turn the Heart off, we're toast. Progress, not perfection. We can do better. Willingness to grow along spiritual lines can flip even the worst of trauma.
