SEPTEMBER 11, 2013

 
 
A solemn day, sadness hovers over half-mast flags.
We gather to hear 3000-plus names and remember
lives, dreams, expectations, all snuffed out.
Radical leaders spout hatred so dark and cold that
even their own followers are destroyed.
Such malevolence wears many disguises:
sometimes robed in authority or piety, but
always adorned with the arrogance of mere men,
blind to their own fallibility. I cringe at
such certainty – whatever cause – that seeks to
plant in the hearts of people such hate.

 
But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another! Gal. 5:15
