Understanding Mercy


There was a young man in Napoleon's army who committed a deed so 
terrible that it was worthy of death. The day before he was 
scheduled for the firing squad, the young man's mother went to 
Napoleon and pleaded for mercy for her son. 

Napoleon replied, "Woman, your son does not deserve mercy."

"I know," she answered. "If he deserved it then it would not be mercy."
