yet so wonderfully awesome
Yes. The dark underbelly of our shiny society - it's very dark.I love this sculpture. It is truly amazing.
Kent,thanks for sharing....I think I may link to this....the video was amazing.My favoring part was when one of the young spoke about how people talk about making peace and then try to enforce with weaponry....he wryly finishes his segment with a simple "you can't do it that way."Spoken like someone who's speaking from experience.I have an Irish Musician friend who's coming up on 50 years old in the next year or so....he was in Belfast back in the 70's and 80's when a lot of the bombings took place....lost friends, cousins, and bought his first bass guitar for like 25.00 after a guitar shop had been bombed out.It's interesting to hear his slant on politics and military conflict having lived through such a tumultuous time.....talk soon,Todd
Todd, it is the part of the video you mentioned that jumped out at me also. "Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it." Dr. King
Okay, I've watched the video now :) Thanks for posting, Kent. I am posting it myself at my blog ... and not only that, I'm stealing your Dr King quote as well.What can you do? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, apprently :)
Kent,Thanks for the link to the video. I'd heard about the sculpture from N.T. Wright and to watch and listen to the video was wonderful.
I had heard about it awhile back through NT Wright also. When I ran across the quote from Girard it made me think about the sculpture. I googled it to get a picture and the youtube video came up also. I hadn't seen it before. It is a most important message.
It is indeed.
Barb! Good to see you again! All I can say is, you must be making, like, 500 bucks an hour doing your typing from home thingy, 'cause everytime I come across you you're off to the airport! Wow! I must go and check out your site!:)
