I am overwhelmed.
With the guilty verdicts for a murderer.
With sadness for the family and friends of George Floyd.
With happiness for the family and friends of George Floyd.
With relief that the universe righted itself a bit today.
With bitter sweetness.
With these words of Longfellow, written during the Civil War as his son fought in the Union army.
And in despair I bowed my head;
There is no peace on earth, I said;
For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men.
