In the News Today …


“Karla Homolka not worthy of forgiveness”


but then

none of us are

“worthy of forgiveness”

it is a gift undeserved

at best

often unrequested

at worst


“Karla Homolka did not pay her debt to society”


but then

none of us have

“paid our debt to society”

it is a debt unpayable

at best

often ununderstood

at worst


and as a society un-Christian

having long since slipped our moorings

can forgiveness even be a thing

can such a debt ever be repaid

pain lives on

its tears seldom dry

how can who we are today

not keep a watchful eye
