WHEN CONSCIENCE TAKES A VACATION

WHEN CONSCIENCE TAKES A VACATION





Perhaps our conscience took a vacation when we said that

Chemical weapons were not used on Fallujah but were

Incendiary bombs as the white phosphorous melted flesh.



Maybe conscience took a vacation at Ruby Ridge where a

Mother’s head was blown off, a child shot in the back and

Their dog was killed. Maybe conscience only took a leave.



Conscience took a vacation at Waco when they said they

Were trying to protect the children inside the compound

By using tanks to burn and destroy everything inside.



Conscience takes a vacation when the high command of

Nazi Germany says they are only following orders; the same

Conscience takes a vacation in arpatheid South Africa.



Conscience takes a vacation every time dissent is stifled; every

Time torture is sanctioned in Guantanamo and every time we

Try to push back and destroy the evil projected in our minds.



But, in the end there is forgiveness for everyone who has a lapse

In conscience because finally it is us who is hurt; it is us who

Seeks reconciliation and forgiveness for our absentee conscience
