“There is nothing new under the sun.”
I was reminded of that saying tonight after watching Robert Redford’s “The Conspirator.”
If you haven’t seen it – I would highly recommend you do. It is a sad and horrifying reminder that nothing is new, and what has been done will happen again.
We may look around us and wish for “simpler times” – but the more and more I read of history, the more convinced I am becoming that they never existed. Has there ever been a time without persecution, fear-mongering and blame shifting? Sadly, I think not.
Lord help us move forward and create something new…peace, compassion, justice.
