The Sound of Sabers Rattling

I published this poem one year ago as a way to deal with my sorrow and fear over our increasingly hate-filled world.  With a fresh onslaught of hatred being spewed out on innocent Moslem American citizens after the attack in San Bernardino I place my hope on paying attention.  May we all slow down and listen to what is being said and felt in the spaces between the words.  May we give voice to trust and love as we oppose injustice.
