The beauty of Creation
Laws For Creation
“Laws for creations,
For strong artists and leaders, for fresh broods of teachers and
perfect literats for America,
For noble savans and crooning musicians.
All must have reference to the ensemble of the world, and the compact truth of the world,
There shall be no subject too pronounced–all works shall
Illustrate the divine law of indirections.
What do you suppose creation is?
What do you suppose will satisfy the soul, except to walk free
and own no superior?
What do you suppose I would intimate to you in a hundred
ways, but that man or woman is as good as God?
And that there is no God any more divine than Yourself?
And that that is what the oldest and newest myths finally mean?
And that you or any one must approach creations through such laws?”
——Walt Whitman, Laws for Creation
I found that I am so upset that I had to rely on Whitman’s words because mine must not leave my lips. Not only was another child shot but there wasn’t hardly any news coverage. I guess the story didn’t bleed enough. It is just so wrong. I felt Whitman only could say the right words.
We must stop the shooting and the violence
He is my brother
Well there has been another shooting in Atlanta. I watched them put a child on a gurney and the ambulance racing to the hospital with lights whirling and sirens screaming.Screaming is the perfect sound to describe the loss of another child to gun violence. My heart trembles and my hands don’t want to type. Again, a child has been shot in the head at school. AGAIN ! AGAIN ! What is wrong with our society?
Fourteen years old child has been shot in the head.
Crime Scene Tape at Atlanta School
The news anchors say another child brought the gun to school and shoot the other child who is in hospital and still alive. The child remains in hospital. Lest we think it is just our children, a Texas Assistant District Attorney was shot. The police are still looking for the assailant.
One of the people who is following Obama so closely, I think he could contribute to a biography! So, I felt this needed to be shared. Congrats on such a great sketch.
