Then, There Is Hope

I was going to say-

When

The Muslim protects the Israelite,

And

The Israelite protects the Christian,

And

The Christian protects the Hindu,

And

The Hindu protects the Buddhist,

And

The Buddhist protects the Atheist,

And

The Atheist protects the Mormon,

And

The Mormon protects the Wiccan,

And

The Wiccan protects the Taoist,

And

All of these are interchangeable –

There will be hope for us all.

Instead,

It seems that when protection is not needed from one another

But acceptance is the rule of peace,

Then,

We will have hope.

    Hope coming from acceptance would be great, Colleen. My Mom and I were discussing how the news emphasized fear of the Islamic and Muslim faiths. Mom said she doesn’t “excuse” certain groups over other ones. I looked at her wide-eyed and said by her being 87 I would think she would be “set in her ways.” She said, “This won’t happen as long as I have breath in my lungs.” If only. . .
