It Shouldn't Be Like This

Are you struck, as I am, by the wisdom and intensity in these eyes, in her face?  How old is this little girl?  She's just a little one, recently arrived on the human plain.  And yet, in her eyes we see something like the wisdom of generations, something like the pain of her many ancestors, something like the wounded christ moving through the centuries...

And she cries for her people, she pleads for our humanity, she insists on something better and deeper and wiser than violence...Here is the holy face of God.  And the voice of Spirit in our time.
