The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.
- Flannery O'Connor
On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won't understand
Don't accept that what's happening
Is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away
When twilight drops her curtain down and pins it with a star,
remember that you have a friend though she may wander far.
