A Plea for Mercy

The difference between justice and mercy is
dramatically shown in an incident attributed to
Napoleon.

A young soldier had been found guilty of sleeping while
on sentry duty and had been sentenced to death. His
distraught mother finally got an interview with
Napoleon to plead for her son. He was her only child;
he was young; he had an otherwise blameless record.

"Yet he endangered the entire army by his action," said
Napoleon. "Justice demands that he should die."

"True, sire," responded the woman, "But I plead not for
justice but for mercy."

"Very well then," answered Napoleon, "I will have
mercy."
