For Rami Khader Ayyad


Faith is strong

Stronger than the immutable laws of physics

That bind our bodies to this earth

As faith binds our souls

For a short time

Then escapes the steely grip

Leaving behind a shell

For the quick to ponder




Rami Khader Ayyad was a Christian living in the Gaza Strip, a nightmare of a place in the Middle East. He was killed, stabbed and shot, most likely for not being muslim. I am not going to link the article as it is written by some Associated Press idiot that…well, I am not going to link the article.


Ya see, this morning I spent time in service, time I needed to spend, and it felt good. Then, I read an article that showed the spirit of the American Family, that is linked here. It is a Vanity Fair article, kinda tough to deal with the clicks, and I don't think anyone can read it without crying.


Then the article above, the one I will not link, Google it if you must, and someone on a blog answered a question like this:

re: #11 ointmentfly

That guy must have had a huge pair....

No, just Faith.


Which led to the above poem, good or bad, it happened and here it stays.
