The Rule

When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be
For though they may be parted, there is still a chance that they will see

There will be an answer, let it be.

There has always been and always will be senseless evil in the world. We think society has evolved, has become so sophisticated, but then that evil appears once again just as primitive and ugly as it ever was. Today it appeared in an elementary school in Newton, Connecticut. It appeared in the form of a 20 year old man, carrying guns. A man whose mother taught young children in that school. A man who had so much hatred in his heart that he mercilessly could kill innocent children.

How can we heal people who are so badly broken? And how did they get that way in the first place? You can’t write legislation to prevent that level of sickness.

I only wish you could.

Over 2000 years ago, a man gave us a Rule, a piece of legislation if you will. “Love one another as you would be loved. Do unto others as you would have done to you.”

So simple. And yet so hard to make reality.

But what would the world look like if we could?

I wonder. Oh, I wonder.
