We have seen a lot of death lately, Farrah, Michael, Karl Malden, Billy Mays, Steve McNair, Sarah Palin’s political career, John Ensign’s political career, Sanford’s political carer, the Republican Permanent Majority, The Republican Party’s Ideology, the Republican Party, the Iranian clerics hold on the People of Iran, Newspapers, death at Disneyworld… Heck, The Dead are even on tour/
The purpose of death, of course, is to make way for new life, for creation.
We are in a transition period between the death of an old world and the creation of a new one. The ‘signs’ of the death of the old world are all around.
But we have not really seen a shape, an indication, or even really a glimpse of the new world that will emerge from the chaos surrounding the death of the old one.
The new world will be, as it always is, created by the young people of the world as I touched on recently. Hopefully with the guidance of some GOOD old folks, to steer them through the mistakes that were made in the past. There is a sense of Revolution in the air, but it has not quite formed yet, to my eye.
I may be wrong, but so far I have not seen a rallying point or a real theme or direction to this new world, it feels like it is still forming. Have you?
On a lazy long weekend Sunday, what are your thoughts as to how this new world we are waiting upon to emerge will look?
