depicting miracles impossible to replicate...
dismisses the opportunity to comprehend
the nature of miracles that may have truly been
Somehow equating meaning...
by an event having occurred
exactly as it is/was depicted.
Some desires/pursuits just cannot co-exist
simultaneously…a desire to be seen as a humble

Stop glorifying violence...
Stop worshiping a god to whom

congruent with profound sorrow.

the appeal of convenience (and a decreased
sense of personal accountability). There may
have been a sense of an increased freedom to
do and say whatever impulse may suggest.
