      “We can easily forgive

      a child who is afraid of the dark,

      the real tragedy of life is when 

      men are afraid of the light”

      Plato

      What do you think of this statement by Plato?

      The tragedy of life takes place when power is being abused; and are carried out towards smaller number of groups in the society; and otherwise-good-men allow this ill-treatment to continue right under their noses.

      Literally to this quote. Life is a tragedy when you are imprisoned for nothing.

      We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.

      As a child a person do not know many things so it’s easy for them to turn a blind eye almost and forgive a child for not knowing certain things, whereas when ‘adults’ choose not to see the things it’s a tragedy.

      It is normal and apporiate for kids to be afraid of the dark, it can be forgiven. What cannot be forgiven, according to Plato here, are men who cannot face the light. Men are supposed to be the heads of the family, society, organizations and nations. They are supposed to lead and protect. One who leads and protects is one who has seen the light and is not afraid of the beam. They are the ones that are bold enough to do things and answer to their responsibilities.

      A Plato… People are like stained glass
      windows: they sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness
      sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light within . By Elizabeth Kubler Ross
