I was reading about something else when I saw a link to “strange fruit.” I didn’t know the meaning, and clicked.
I’ve never heard of Abel Meeropol, but now he is one of my heroes. His story made me feel good to be a human.
You may already know about him, and about strange fruit. Whether you do or not, you will find his story inspiring. Here is a man of unshakable compassion, decency and courage.
Consider this. A man and woman have just been executed for treason. Their relations are too afraid to care for their two young orphaned sons. So, Abel and his wife, Anne, adopt the two boys.
I have a list of characteristics I look for when assessing a person’s spiritual development. Abel ticks all the boxes for the highest level. In our ever more troubled times, we all need to copy him.
