The Prompt for Today was:
I emerge from from the basement
having watched a small portion of a movie about the Holocaust.
My heart feels heavy,
my eyes still wet from angry tears.
How could a people be so cruel,
so full of hatred,
so empty of empathy,
Where is the beauty?
What marks of goodness dwelt in such places?
Where God has been refused,
where no real love for Him exists,
bitterness and ugliness
and unfathomable deeds.
There is distortion of good.
There is evil.
Beauty is in God
who loves with no partiality.
Beauty can come from the ashes...
but the ashes cry out
in ugly reminders
of where man can go
when the beauty of a man's soul
May we never,
