Liberty! Sweet Liberty! How many sacrifices are made in your name. How much pain endured. Yet. Maggot-driven egos can subvert the message and the goal. Seeming to uphold the Civic Rights of some; how easily are the rights of others wronged. Cries of “Slash, Burn!” Counter-productive to the cause fill the air with a blinding haze. If it is peace we desire, let us hear the wisdom of people like St Ignatius:

“Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,
my memory, my understanding,
and my entire will,
All I have and call my own.You have given all to me.
To you, Lord, I return it.Everything is yours; do with it what you will.
Give me only your love and your grace,
that is enough for me.”
