Response to the Holocost

December 28, 2008
Let us not hate those who plunder,
those who torture, rape, and murder.
Let us not despise
those who take away the lives
of the ones we love
and above
all hold

Let us instead
remember these dead
and keep them alive;
in our hearts let them thrive.
Let us love, not hate,
and from this date
on, let us keep our loved ones

It was brought to my attention that this poem and the comment seem somewhat flippant. I did NOT intend that! In saying that getting angry over what happened is pointless, I did not mean that it was unimportant. We have every right to be angry about what happened, but letting that anger grow and consume us is what is pointless. We should love those who still live so that we can keep something like this, or worse, from happening again.
