World Un-Affairs

Jewish man in his yarmulke

Muslim woman in her hijab

walk in separate directions

There is still blood dripping

from where a Hutu stabbed a Tutsi

War is not over

The battle has not been won

I pray….

1 Corinthians 12: 4-8 (English Standard Version):

Love is patient,

Love is kind.

It does not envy, it does not boast,  it is not proud.

It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,

it is not easily angered,

it keeps no record of wrongs.

It always protects, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.

Progress is not easy

It tears at the fabric of who we are as people

Familiar is safe

Don’t marry a different race

Truth: Race is a social construct and we ARE all the same

But don’t teach that….

Don’t preach truth to the little girls and boys with open minds

Let’s indoctrinate them and fill their heads with half the story

Of why the world really is unfair and corrupt

Go slaughter the locals and rape the girls

Force them on their knees to worship to your deity or monarchs

Steal the land and lead the rest of the people into indentured servitude

Celebrate the new area you discovered

The same set of land people lived and thrived on long before your arrival

Write all about it in your journal like Christopher Columbus

Sit on your money, speak on your power, and let everyone else know how you

toiled the ground with your bare hands

If they do it too, they can live in the mansion on the hill

Smoothly you are told: Wait . . .please… don’t expect  a handout . . .

Good luck! (Smile)
