Les Miserables: Is It Worth It?

Liliana Owen, Journalist November 25, 2019
Imagine a man, a holy priest, who has done nothing but good in his life. One day a criminal comes along and asks to stay the night. Being the good man that he was, he said yes. But when morning came, the man was gone, taking with him the priest’s most prized possessions: a silver tableware set, his last worldly treasure. The criminal was caught by the police and dragged back, where the priest was asked to confirm the man’s claim that it had been a gift. What does the priest do? Does he tell the truth and send the man to prison for life, or tell a lie and let the criminal go free, giving him a second chance at life?
