Nothing New

“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.
