Get My Drift?

When it comes to maniacs with guns slaughtering our citizens, especially children, the solution must include more strict gun legislation and armed guards

The National Rifle Association (the NRA), representing the political right, thinks armed guards patrolling the schools is the only solution.  But Moms Against Guns, representing the political left, think less availability of guns is the only solution.  Why not do both?  More convincing gun legislation and armed guards

The eagle won’t fly without the left wing & the right wing flapping in some kind of unison.  Otherwise, Big Bird stays perched ~ and the slaughter continues…

Shepherdess of Domremy hearkens to her voices…

TH-4

by Sister Teresa

Carmelite of Lisieux

1907

Happy, happy am I,
Jeanne the shepherdess!
How swift my lambkins fly
To meet my kind caress.

How light my little crook;
How cool this verdant grove,
Beside whose babbling brook
In solitude I rove.

A lovely crown I weave
Of field-flowers, fair and sweet;
What joy is mine to leave
That crown at Mary’s feet!

Oh, how I love the flowers,
The birds, the rippling stream
The skies above these bowers
As fair as angel’s dream.

The valleys and the rills
Rejoice my longing eyes;
The summits of the hills,
They seem to touch the skies!

But hark! What voices come
Upon the evening breeze?
Do angels seek my home
With melodies like these?

I question air and space,
I gaze into the skies;
And yet no slightest trace
Of angels greets my eyes.

Ah, past those clouds that bar
And veil them from my sight,
Would I might fly afar
To realms of radiant light!
