Reflection and Renewal
The Jewish holiday of Passover begins tomorrow evening, April 8th. A commemoration of suffering followed by deliverance, the holiday may hold particular relevance at this time. A reading appears below.
Peace is not the product of despair. An army's most invincible least used. Strength engenders weakness when abused, Serving best by merely being there. One conquers in the end by being just, Vanquishing the conscience with the right. Each child that's passed over in the night Restores just one-half bullet's worth of trust. -- Nicholas Gordon
