For humanity to carry on
we need to have the courage to “invent peace”.
Of course we’ve asked ourselves:
Where do the kamikazes get the radicality
such a terrible choice as theirs requires?
Shouldn’t we be ready to give even our life
for the great ideal of love of God and love of neighbor.
Every person can love
because brotherly love is written in our DNA.
The brotherhood that Jesus brought on earth would then flower everywhere.
He became our brother, and made us all brothers and sisters to one another.
Perhaps Divine Providence
makes use of destructive situations
to spark an unexpected moral jumpstart
and unleash unimagined energy
with which to build a whole new peace
and allow humanity to breath again.
