day 82

Do not fret because of the
         wicked;
   do not be envious of
         wrongdoers, Psalm 37:1

may the image
that remains not
      be the wrecked car
      or knives on the ground,
but
the strangers
   kneeling to comfort
         an unknown sister,
the responders
   leaving their fear
   behind as they run
      to help,
a people
   refusing the easy
   choice to
                  hate.
