A world full of chaos

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

Wel­come, chaos! You were the pri­mor­dial and most an­cient of Greek gods. It is said you were the source of cre­ation of the uni­verse and of all mat­ter and en­ergy, which can nei­ther be cre­ated nor de­stroyed. You have vis­ited this earth since its be­gin­ning, evolv­ing earth it­self and its in­hab­i­tants. You cre­ated mankind in your im­age, each of us with mind, heart (to be used to­gether), soul and a won­drous, in­tri­cate body. You gave us the knowl­edge of good and evil and the free­dom to be as we choose in our lives. You cre­ated time as we know it, but there are no lim­its to time or power in your be­ing. You are the all pow­er­ful mys­tery of all life.

When many of this hu­man race get stuck in clumps of dis­cord, con­fu­sion, dis­cour­age­ment and anger, you thrust your wrath upon us, de­mand­ing change and or­der. You work in us and through us, strength­en­ing those who know you, all in your in­fal­li­ble love. On the top of the moun­tain, a mys­ti­fied Moses asked your name to tell the peo­ple be­low. You breathed: “I am that I am … tell them I Am sent you.” We live and move and have our be­ing in you. Many know that.

I want to thank the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, its com­mu­nity of edi­tors and columnists, es­pe­cially Paul Green­berg and David Brooks, and the let­ter-writ­ers for the be­liefs, in­spi­ra­tion and laughs shared.

And I think Pres­i­dent Trump should re­lease his tax in­for­ma­tion and stop his tweets. I pray for him and for Mr. Putin, ISIS, etc., giv­ing them all to God so I don’t have to worry about the rest of us. JU­DITH BAUM North Lit­tle Rock
