George Washington's Rules - #23

George Washington's Rules for Civility and Decent Behavior, Rule #23 says:

23rdWhen you see a Crime punished, you may be inwardly Pleased; but always show Pity to the Suffering Offender.

Which to me means we need to learn (and teach our children) to have self control and to display appropriate empathy for a situation, regardless of what our initial internal reaction may be.
