Dr. Martin Luther King

from pbs

We have slipped, somewhat fallen away from his vision,

may we be restored,

may we return to the fire

seeking equality

for one,

and for all.

God thank You for the life and work of Dr. King.

Amen.

The Strength of Our Poetry

20170628_140704

The strength of our poetry does not depend only

on our maneuvering of words

but the depth of our wounds,

and being filled overwhelmingly 

with the healing.

393 Million

20170916_122348

There are 393 million guns in the United States, not including military and police weapons.

We have more guns here than we have people. For every man, woman, child, and infant…. there is a gun, and more than that.

There are times that police arrive on the scene of a shooting and they are out gunned by the shooter.

Countries such as Britain don’t have mass shootings because they have few guns. It’s simple math really.

Having more guns makes us less safe.

And yet certain Senators continue to block legislation that would help us to be safer.

If you live in the U.S. please let your Congressional representatives and Senators know you want some common sense gun control.

The time is now.

Peace.
