Just wanted to let you know that I got your email.This is the second time that I came here to read this.It is so good that you have the Heart to write about such things for with which so many are ignorant.
So many offerings I've read seem to go on about the moon,the stars,the rain,etc...and that is all fine and oft times very eloquent and beautiful,but any offering written with concern and Heart,even ones which may be painful to read,rise high on my scale of relevance.So good to know that I have a "sister" out there such as yourself.
Yes,so many times I have thought of those chidren who have watched their entire families being slaughtered right before their eyes.Can we at all imagine what effect that would have on a soul?I can't help but to think of the song,"Somewhere" from West Side Story.What stage can we set for any type of Utopia,if we do not use our eyes, ears and voices to entail a "Peaceful" fight against these "things that should not be"?
Maybe it is up to the poets and songwriters to inspire enough to rise up and change this crazy world.Excellent offering,Kacy.
Hoping that you,your family and friends have an inspiring Thanksgiving Day,
If a man has not discovered something he is willing to die for,his life is not worth living.
