Good Friday Lament

Whatever our religious views, Good Friday should remind us that:

All of us have the capacity to do great evil or stand by while great evil is done.

We all do the latter, every day. The stones should cry out against us!

We need to do better, but it's not at all clear that we're making progress.

Perhaps it's foolish to believe we will change our ways.

Unearned forgiveness may be our only hope.

Even if we only forgive each other,

and accept each other's forgiveness in true humility,

that would be a good start.
