In the past few days we have seen some horrific acts done in the name of religion. In Pakistan, we had an extreme part of the Islamic faith kill nearly 150 people, mostly school children, in the name of religion. In Sydney Australia, we had a lone follower of this extreme set of beliefs take many people hostage and cause the deaths of 3.
My voice in prayer is raised this day.
Ragged words spun into the tangled thread of history and pain.
Fear rides Blackness like a cancer caused by Whiteness
And I can only assume my complicit action unseen by my own eye.
This is a false dichotomy more dangerous than many;
Decartes’ divide of mind and body doesn’t bring Death’s implacable grasp.
