Bastille Day is Over

Yesterday was a tragedy to all of us who remember Liberty as a woman
of great strength crushing enemies of Freedom and raising a torch to
light immigrants to our shores. The French gave us our Statue of Liberty, but all we can return to them today are oceans of tears for
the slaughter in Nice. What do rational people do in the face of
the growing madness of others? Do we kill in return? do we retreat?
I have no answer to hate. I only have an answer to those who love.
I am not equipped to deal in the pain.

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
