Poetic Wisdom for Paris

Rock solid


I was praying for France, and Longfellow’s wisdom played through my thoughts:



And in despair I bowed my head;
“There is no peace on earth,” I said:
“For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead; nor doth he sleep!
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men!”
Christmas Bells, 1863

Well said, Mr. Longfellow. Amen.bless praying

  1. Yes…though I had a tag from the Bard in mind – “All hell shall stir for this.”

    These irritating people have held the world’s stage for several acts too many, and it’s time to bring down the curtain.
