Bad Freedom

Freedom is more than a matter of aimless choice. It is not enough to affirm my liberty by choosing “something.” I must use and develop my freedom by choosing something good.

Thomas Merton, No Man is an Island, “Conscience, Freedom, and Prayer”

A so-called freedom
Riling people up
To tote their guns
And speak their hate

Bound by their forgetfulness
That the meek shall inherit the earth
And peacemakers be called the children of God

May they remember

Grace and peace to you…
