Calling an Army of Angels

In the aftermath of the violence at our nation’s Capitol Building on January 6th, I find myself feeling anger, grief, despair and a sense of impotence or helplessness.

I sense and fully expect more violence to erupt in the days ahead, between now and Inauguration Day, and even beyond.

A sleeping monster has been awakened. Fed on a toxic brew of lies, fake victimhood, self-righteous entitlement and the glorification of violence, I fear this monster will not go quietly back to sleep any time soon.

A change in leadership, while welcomed, will not lay the monster to rest.

Our collective shadow has stepped into the spotlight, and it likes it there.

But there is a stronger Light, and I call upon it now. May an army of angels protect this nation and keep us safe from violence, insurrection and anarchy in the coming weeks and beyond. May the light of our better natures guide us into right action. May the light of Truth destroy the web of lies. May the light of Justice reveal and hold accountable all who participate in or foment insurrection. May we strive to embody the ideals this nation was founded upon – equality, freedom and true justice.

    Laraine, You have a gift for writing, I enjoyed reading your thoughts on this moment in time. Like you, I have had that same feeling…. the violence in this country has only just begun. I think that impeaching the president for a second time is going to be an excuse for another round of violence so although I think it’s the right thing to do, I’m not so sure its important to be “right” when it may cause great harm or death for those seeking the impeachment of president Trump.

    I was also thinking and journaling today on why it is that some of us who listen to Trump don’t believe him and find his actions and rhetoric troubling, while others find him almost God like, and feel that he is trustworthy, working to make their lives better. I have not come up with an answer. Does it have to do with our brains? Do people not know the difference between right and wrong? Does integrity not matter anymore? and if so, why? Lots of questions and no answers.

    Prayers for our country, our citizens, our president and vice president elect Biden and Harris…they certainly have a lot on their plate.

      Thank you, Cindy. Yes, deep questions and many of them. Journaling is a great way to explore those questions and determine what is ours to do.
