Hear the crying

First published April 2002 and so apropos today. When two year old pain can sound as fresh and relevant today as then, we as a people are failing our lessons.

“I want silence more than anything. I want everyone to shut the hell up so we can all hear the crying. I want everyone to dip a finger into the deep pool and taste the blood.

LISTEN TO ME. It doesn’t matter who’s right. Let me say that again: Right now, it doesn’t matter who’s right. Stop with the screeds. It doesn’t matter who’s right.”

Jon Carroll San Francisco Chronicle, 4/16/02
