A solemn day,
sadness hovers over half-mast flags.
We gather to
hear 3000-plus names and remember
expectations, all snuffed out.
spout hatred so dark and cold that
even their own followers
wears many disguises:
in authority or piety, but
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
