“And what can I do?”
Often asked by those with an incipient social conscience.
“For a start, go see the scene in Les Miserables
Where Jean Valjean gets ten years of hard labor,
Rowing in the galleys of a French ship. :
But the sentence is not as important as
A knife in the loaf of bread he stole for a poor family.
The judge orders the bread and knife tossed into the trash.
The bread and knife might lead to some answers for
‘And what can I do?'”
