Poetry, art, music, movies, this is what often can inspire us in moments of darkness. One of our board members, Luthfun, came across this beautiful piece by Naomi Lazard. We thought it was only appropriate to share.
(Poem #1312) Ordinance on Arrival
Welcome to you who have managed to get here. It's been a terrible trip; you should be happy you have survived it. Statistics prove that not many do. You would like a bath, a hot meal, a good night's sleep. Some of you need medical attention. None of this is available. These things have always been in short supply; now they are impossible to obtain. This is not a temporary situation. Our condolences on your disappointment. It is not our responsibility everything you have heard about this place is false. It is not our fault you have been deceived, ruined your health getting here. For reasons beyond our control there is no vehicle out.
Happy Friday all! May you have a safe and restful weekend!
