Hearts breaking

July 14, 2013

The US appears in the throes of a crazy, wing-nut gun-a-mania.

One piece of commentary via Miss Emily Dickinson:

“If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain”

(Illustration found here).
