Lamentations in Lent #4

“No empire can hold sway for ever, and the collapse of power always engenders suffering in the population as the weak pay the price for the shortcomings of the powerful. And so the world shares the cup of suffering, and we pass it from hand to hand like a chalice of blood, each nation drinking deeply in its turn from the wine of destruction. Empires sow the seeds of their own downfall and reap the harvest of their suffering, and the cycle seems endless through history, from ancient Israel, to East Africa, to our own city.”
