Hands on Shoulders

The following was written by CHAPLAIN [LTC] JAMES C. BERBIGLIA,USA,Ret.
PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH USA in response to the tragic shooting yesterday at the elementary school in Connecticut:

Children, hands on shoulders ahead of them like little elephants trunk to tail,
Quick march, crying, terrified past slaughtered kindergarteners to the firehouse,
While Fathers and brothers play weapons and war games on X-Boxes
And White Male Congressmen vote for more guns and right-to-carry
And Jesus is born in a manger, challenging the power of Roman Rule.
