In the News Today …


“Karla Homolka not worthy of forgiveness”


but then
none of us are
“worthy of forgiveness”
it is a gift undeserved
at best
often unrequested
at worst


“Karla Homolka did not pay her debt to society”


but then
none of us have
“paid our debt to society”
it is a debt unpayable
at best
often ununderstood
at worst


and as a society un-Christian
having long since slipped our moorings
can forgiveness even be a thing
can such a debt ever be repaid
pain lives on
its tears seldom dry
how can who we are today
not keep a watchful eye
