The world outside seems like a crazy merry-go-around.
Severed heads. Shattered countries. Helpless presidents. Girls are raped like it’s nothing – in India and Sudan it can seem like it’s endemic. And the world is silent.
Chaos. Do we even know what we are anymore?
Everyone’s yelling about something; we’ve learned to bark better than the dogs. And the dogs are abandoned like they are trash.
Suffering. Children are used as human shields; it’s happening now in Syria and not too long ago in Gaza.
The North hate the South. The South swears the North is a plague. The Whites kill the Blacks. The Blacks murder other Blacks -and sometimes Whites, too. Ninety percent of the world is starving. Elephants are nearly extinct and tigers are killed to make throw rugs.
Priests speak of God, but they turn their backs and leave the little nuns in Burundi to do the work that Christ has asked of us: to love one another.
And we’re all waiting for the iPhone 6.
