Carol Wilcox is hosting Poetry Friday this week at her blog, Carol's Corner. Run over to read all the other poetry shared, and Carol's poem by Billy Collins.
I've been traveling, first to a conference, then to visit family, and there is much to share. But first, along with all the joy, there is sorrow.
The recent tragic murders last week of those attending their prayer meeting have been ever on my mind. I've been wondering more and more how someone can feel so opposed to other groups that he believes he must destroy those that he sees as alien? Here's a poem by Maya Angelou that I want to share with you today in memory of those nine from our "human family".
by Maya Angelou
I note the obvious differences
in the human family.
Some of us are serious,
some thrive on comedy.
Some declare their lives are lived
as true profundity,
and others claim they really live
the real reality.
the rest is here.
