Rev. Peter's Poem, "The River" and "Reflections on Las Vegas Shootings"

The River (this month's theme is "Courage")

All your life, a river has run
past your door.
You’ve chosen, finally,
to enter its flow.
The raft you’ve built is sound
and well-provisioned.
The paddle’s grip 
fits firmly in your hand.
Now, all that’s left to do 
is to push off 
from the safety of the shore.
 

Rev. Peter's Reflection on Las Vegas Shootings

And, so, we find ourselves reeling from yet another horrific mass shooting, this one of unbelievable proportion. The latest body count is 59 dead and more than 500 injured. Within a matter of minutes, an outdoor concert venue filled with revelers became a killing field. As one commentator put it last night, “This is the largest mass shooting in American history. Until the next one.” Words cannot describe the depth of my sadness for the families who lost their children, parents, friends in Las Vegas yesterday, and for those injured who will live with the trauma for the rest of their lives.
