Anywhere Anyway

I’m human here, I’m human there,
I am human everywhere!
Makes no difference what skin I’m in,
Matters not who is my kin,
Looking goth or glam or status quo;
I’m still human where-‘er I go!
I am old, I am young,
I am pro- or anti- gun.
I am sick, I am well;
I am quiet, I sometimes yell;
Sometimes some will even say
I am surely on my way
Up to Heaven or going straight to Hell!
But only God and time will tell.
This one thing I am most sure;
It is true, it will endure:
We’re each unique, yet all the same;
We are human, we have a name;
We’re not numbers, ideas, or things;
We are sacred human-beings.
Matters not our vocation;
Matters not our location:
In or out of mother’s womb
From conception unto tomb,
We are human, we are sacred.
Stop the killing, stop the hatred.
On this side, or on that,
East, west, south, north on the map,
We are human, we are sacred.
Stop the killing, stop the hatred.

(Another Seuss-esque From-the-desk
of one who would say
love each other
anyway.)

I am Christian, married, a pianist. My favorite composers to play are Beethoven, Chopin, and Bach. I'm also an avid reader of great literature, and I like to write: it helps me think. I try to avoid "tribal thinking"; I'm glad and grateful to be Catholic, but I believe all Christians are my brothers & sisters in Christ, those of the Jewish faith are my cousins/elders in faith, and all human-beings are my fellow beloved-children of God. I believe God is our Loving Creator. God loves everyone, no exceptions. The Holy Spirit is growing me in Christ. Other things about me: I can't stand bullies, but I still try to understand their point-of-view; I abhor cruelty, and I do my utmost to make peace inasmuch as it's up to me; I enjoy challenges, variety, spontaneity, color, but I also like solitude, quiet, order. My healing and my bliss is in recognizing I am part of the Body of Christ. Shalom!
