This story in today's New York Times should shame all those who proclaim their opposition to our country's welcoming even a handful of refugees from Syria.  Should we protect ourselves at the cost of all compassion? The shameful vote in Congress to make it all but impossible for refugees to reach our shores, along with the equally shameful refusal of (almost exclusively Republican) governors--these are symptoms of the kind of sickness I write about below.  When compassion dies, so does humanity.
