Write Again … Morning stars will sing!

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Guten Tag. I hope your day thus far has been good.

Please let me share with you, here at the beginning, some grandiloquent words that reference the Bible. A Biblical scholar I am not. I would not wish anyone to think that I felt I was. No way.

“This is our faith. The psalmist is right. Midnight may come. ‘Weeping may tarry for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.’

“With this faith we will be able to transform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows and speed up that day when ‘every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain; and the glory shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.’ and when this happens, morning stars will sing together, and the sons of God will shout for joy.”

The man who quoted these sentiments was killed in cold blood fifty-five years ago. Millions mourned his death; perhaps millions of others either felt no sadness, or actually were gladdened.

Some said he “asked for it.” Those who courageously seek to cause change, seek justice, are often at risk. Even now.

Time moves on. I will not attempt a litany of all of the challenges our country, and much of the world, has faced since then. Has faced before that time. Will continue to face.

Such challenges seem not to have good solutions. It usually requires trying to make the lesser of bad choices.

For the most part, the only positive changes individuals can make are within themselves.

Such change must begin with the desire for change. And that, my brothers and sisters, must come from deep within: the mind, the heart, and the soul.

APROPOS – “Some people see things as they are and ask why? I dream things that never were and say, why not?”

-Shaw (1856-1950)
