Until Such Time…

“It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are 20 gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.”

― Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia & Confession of Nat Turner

Until such time as a person who is…

White, hurts me

Or Black, hurts me

Or gay, hurts me

Or Muslim, hurts me

Or atheist, hurts me

Or had an abortion, hurts me

Or Catholic, hurts me

Or Jewish, hurts me

Or Non-English speaking, hurts me

Or says they are male or female or neither, hurts me

Or an illegal alien, hurts me

Or Republican, hurts me

Or Democrat, hurts me

Or carrying a gun, hurts me

Or conservative, hurts me

Or liberal, hurts me

Or spent time in prison, hurts me

Or in any way is different from me, hurts me

Or any other human hurts me or any innocent person

I will hurt them back in unequal and exponentially worse measure

But it will have nothing to do with who or what they are and everything to do with what they did

Until then… I, and we, should live and let live. As Jefferson said, “it is none of my concern.”

  1. Thought provoking.

    Too few in our violent world believe in turning the other cheek to those who hurt them.
