Today would have been my dad's 80th birthday. He died when he was 57. So much has changed since then in so many ways. It is amazing how people live on, isn't it? It is hard for the human mind to wrap itself around the fact that life indeed does go on after we depart from this world.
It makes me think, too, about what is really important. What did Jesus really come to teach? Partisanship? Judgmentalism? Power grabbing?
Or, radical love for EVERYONE?
Life is short. Put away your swords. Get out the love.
