A haiku written by Lee Sonogan

Eye for an Eye | Listen via Stitcher for Podcasts

The Spirit and Beings continue unselfishly to maintain life upon our planet, restoring us nightly, and forgiving us our wilful blindnesses far beyond our spiritual or bodily capacity of repayment. If the Spirit, Who is Life, exacted an eye for an eye, or a tooth for a tooth, this world would indeed be peopled with the blind and the toothless. – Henry Powell

Inspired by heated protests not done in peaceful ways!

Odd psyche quid pro quo,

Counterinsurgency fates,

Undue forego.

Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. It is impractical because it is a descending spiral ending in destruction for all. The old law of an eye for an eye leaves everybody blind. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding; it seeks to annihilate rather than to convert. – Martin Luther King
