This morning is Easter morning and I am not sitting in church. I instead have read the news of more killings in Baghdad, armed robberies a block from my house, more problems in South Africa, and violence in many parts of the world. This is supposed to be a day when we celebrate victory over death and peace among men.
Why am I so sad? We have always had wars and violence so what makes today any different? It just seems like we have more of it than we ever did except when we were at war. Or perhaps we hear more about the violence in Africa and in Iraq and Afghanistan than we ever did before and more instantaneously. Celebration seems like a mockery.
However, as someone once said to me, there have always have been enough good people to keep the world going and doing the right thing. I hope I am among the good people who are trying to lead the world in the right direction. And I know that there are a lot of you out there who are trying to do the same thing.
I didn’t go to church today. But I still share the hope of Easter in my heart and a wish for all of you for peace and love. HAPPY EASTER!! !HAPPY PASSOVER!!!
