It Just Is …

It is hard for me to find a way to respond to the news, the “celebration,” of Osama bin Laden’s death … this is the way, the only way I know how, to respond. Sadness.

… from Rumi’s Response to Your Questions

… Forget the nonsense categories
of there and here.
Race and nation and religion.
Starting point and destination.

You are soul and you are love,
not a sprite or an angel or a human being.
You are a Godman-womanGod-manGod-Godwoman.

No more questions now
as to what it is we are doing here.

  1. Jesus wept. It is the only response for me, too. Please know that you are not alone in this. Everywhere I turn, there are people, many people, who are feeling the same sadness. I will not clutter your page with arguments and opinions I have expressed elsewhere. Suffice it to say that the man is dead, and I do not mourn him. But my heart is broken for this country, and my mind is filled with anxiety over what the future holds. A safer world? I think not.

  2. Me too.
