Reflection – The Moral Test
As you think about the reading and think back on this course, and perhaps others that came previously, reflect on the following quote:
“The moral test of a government is how it treats those who are at the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the aged; and those who are in the shadow of life, the sick, the needy, and the handicapped.” – Hubert Humphrey, 1977
In a post of 100-150 words, reflect on what it means to you.
