But it's far cooler to sit in Starbucks and tweet that your porch light is on. You can claim you did your part for that poor child. (Though I have never understood the connection between those acts of "solidarity" and getting help for an actual victim.) There's lots of work to be done. Instead of Monday morning quarterbacking the jurors or the prosecution or the defense, I say all those who are outraged should pledge to actually HELP someone.
