Not listen to the rhetoric that seems to fill the airwaves.
Try and learn a little something about another religion.
Reach out to someone who is different than us.
Practice tolerance sometime during the coming week.
Not worry about ‘Taking Back’ but instead Move Forward!!
from Martin Williams, inmate poet at Folsom Prison , California :
JUST IN CASE
Just in case the worry heavy world
Should cast a final backward glance
To whimper at what might have been
Before the horror of trumpets
Blown by indifferent angels
Burns and hails and turns to blood
The bone and breath of form
And I am not this
And you are not that
And for a moment, briefly
We all weep the same tears
And forget the too-many names of God
And all the bitter, biting ways
We clip the wings of each other’s prayers
Just in case
I don’t see you tomorrow
My friend, my friend,
I’ll see you again
Where we shall be healed.
I’ll see you again.
