I was in a large medical office building waiting for the coffee shop to open when in walked a man pulling a long-handled ice chest behind him. This fellow had a smile that seemed to fill the room. You know the kind of smile like someone that just got out of jail or maybe high on drugs,or just happy to be alive and having some great spiritual truth. "Are You with the coffee shop?" I asked. "Yes,coffee will be ready in five minutes" he replied.
We talked over hot coffee for awhile in his small shop. When I asked him who knocked over the twin towers he just pointed matter of factly at the floor. He knows. I enjoyed our chat and I will see him again this Thursday. I figure I will take him some turnips with greens and multiplying onions from our wintergarden.
There is no institution,media outlet,fraternity,human being , angel of light,religious organization or charismatic charlatan that can cause Me to hate this man or his country of origin. Together we will move on to brotherly love and understanding one person to another,and not all the wealth of the oligarchs or millenia of religious hatred can stop us.
