Enough!

Yesterday brought another tragic shooting at a Mississippi college.  When will we begin to have some serious conversations about violence and theological reflection on ways we followers of Christ might be at the forefront of change?  I don’t know about you, but I have had enough…

 

 

Enough!

 

No more let guns kill.

No more let innocent lives

be lost in the acrid smoke

of powder and lead.

 

Enough!

 

No more let words fly,

untouched by grace, 

sharpened by the tongues 

of hateful hearts.

 

Enough!

 

No more let bombs drop.

Keeping peace is a charade

meant to make killing

and torture righteous.

 

Enough!

 

No more let prisoners

die in the name of justice.

The needle and chair,

revenge legally executed.

 

Enough!

Enough!

 

No more death! No more war!

No more hateful words!

No more legal injustice!

 

Enough!

  1. Change is within our power when we vote. Change is within our power when we raise our children. Change is within our power when we teach children. Change is within our power as we set an example.
