a heavy heart

considering the tragic events in Tucson over the weekend...
I find my Friday post of Mark Twain's short story, The War Poem, quite eerie.

at first glance, an indictment of war... but now... an indictment of blind political/patriotic/religious fervor - Hate, by any other name.

and so, this weekend I pray for peace...
                                         for grace...
                                         for compassion... mine and yours.

and still, I believe unyielding love can make even the most stubborn hate yield.
