They caught the serial bomber in Austin, TX. They cornered him and he used his own grisly methods against himself. He lived by the bomb and he died by the bomb. How many times do shooters, terrorists and others who live by violence die violently, and often at their own hands rather than coming to justice? Why does violence so often lead to a bloody end?
Oh, for a moment’s true surrender to a purpose greater than one’s ego, the largeness of spirit that looks beyond one’s own skin and one’s own fears to truly see the face of another!
This is what the spiritual life calls us to.
When the march starts in Gough Park this Saturday to protest gun violence, I’ll be there.
