Excellent post on a blog that is fast becoming my favourite:
At the bus, plenty of angry shouting, more stones flung, a window broken, three youths scream at us: “We don’t want your peace talk, tell it to the RSS who did all this, now get out while you can!”
The thing with trust is: it takes a long time to build and once it is broken, it is very very difficult to get it back.
So, what I wonder is this: how do we so readily believe in God, whom we have not seen in all these years, but are not ready to trust our neighbors whom we have grown up with ? How do so readily trust our politicians who rain catastrophes and scams on us by re-electing them again and again, but are not willing to forgive our friends ?
I am worried…deeply worried.
