A dear friend gave this striking expression of her sentiment on hearing the news of the day; she consented to let me add line breaks and post it.


Julie's Hope


I hope
all things
are quiet

and the
world can

focus

on helping
humanity

rather
than
hunting
down
tyrants.

I like this, a poem stripped of everything extraneous. Only what needed to be said was said.

In a perfect world there would not be any tyrants . . . unfortunately, in the one we have , Americans generally and especially since 9/11 tend to believe those are not mutually exclusive goals. Perhaps only history, in the reflective remove of years, will write the truth of it.
