fr01_400David Sparenberg wrote this note after the events of Charlie Hebdo and now …nine ...ten months later under the shadow of last night’s events. The reason I decided to repeat this text is one word, enough.

It is too late for why, there are too many whys and to be honest I’m tired of all these whys. What I want is …enough! ENOUGH killing. Enough unfair murder of innocent. Enough, enough, enough!

Je Suis Charlie
by David Sparenberg

10 Jan. 2015

There has been enough killing.  Now let there be peace.  There has been enough hunger.  Now let there be commensality.  Deadly thirst throughout many places.  Now let there be mercy.

There has been too, too much heartache, hearts breaking.  Now let there be healing.  There has been too, too much sorrow.  Now let there be joy.  Humor and wine and dancing... and laughter.

Every river flows into the one EarthSea.  Every mountain, in cloud swaddled beauty, reaches upward into one Earth protecting sky.

Let every woman, in her love affair with life, declare she is deep rooted and a greening tree.  Let every man, bold in courage, integral in humility, declare he is as trustworthy as a stone in fresh water stream.

Let this be so: setting free from knotted hatred, liberating from thorny fear; there will be goodness.  Enough goodness.  Day and night.  There will be plenty, from the cornucopia.  There will be peace, from endless dialogue.  There will be soul.  O!

There has been enough, I say to you, enough of darkness.  Now, when we awaken in one another's arms, I wish to sing.  I want to be our love song.  The song that warms even the hobo of the heart, Charlie.  Our song: "Let there be light!"

Indeed, to dehumanize oneself to the point of not even knowing it, is to end up with the heinous inhuman acts we have witnessed yesterday in Paris, or in Egypt or Lebanon recently. What we are witness lately is the spiritual sickness unto death which kills civilizations and a humane society, a malevolent spiritual cancer from which there is no turning back. Our prophets, beginning with Socrates, those who have no power but the power of truth and persuasion, have warned us about that kind of ultimate catastrophe from time immemorial. Let those who have ears, let them hear!
