tears for this woman. More for her child.
The Raven and Eagle
are husband and wife.
The dark one rules death
and the golden one life.
His cloak painted with sunlight,
Eagle soars the blue sky.
With feathers black as pitch,
Raven watches us all die.
Both must be as one
lest there be chaos on Earth.
So from every rotting corpse
there springs a new birth.
author not known
Rest peacefully Kepari.

Horrific...the cruelty based on superstition! 'Man's inhumanity to man'.....

The citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy—a policy worthy of imitation......which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance.......George Washington
