It will make you feel better. It will make everyone around you feel better.

If you're reading this and thinking to yourself "Well that's rather obvious." I don't think Kopnitsky's words were meant for you.

On the other hand, if you're shocked/angered/appalled by any of the things Kopnitsky had to say, well it was intended for you to see/read/hear.
