Well, a new year beckons and it brings along a raft of new hopes and dreams.
But it also seems to bring a renewed stream of problems. The same problems we’ve had for … Well, for some time.
I’m surprised how some are so afraid of others being different, they’ll go to any lengths to avoid, stop or eliminate a difference. No matter this difference doesn’t have any impact on their life – some folks feel any difference can’t be tolerated.
I am aware of how many people are afraid of change, of something different that’s coming down the pipe at us. And this fear is harnessed by politicians for their own ends.
I’m not surprised the Boomers got old. I am surprised they went so far to the political right forgetting what it was like to be young with ideas of forging a new world of love.
I see how in the midst of plenty, folks go to church on Sunday but vote to build a wall on Monday. And I do not understand…
How a media-created problem such as a dandelion on a lawn calls for the general nuking by chemicals that leave a scar on our landscape and bodies.
At this time of year, I am reminded that Jesus was a Jewish, Syrian refugee.
