Paregmenon

Paregmenon (pa-reg’-men-on): A general term for the repetition of a word or its cognates in a short sentence. Often, but not always, polyptoton.

Here, there, and everywhere–wherever we look the power of love is eroding. Headline after headline speaks of acts of hatred, bigotry, intolerance.

Where has Love gone? Where are the linked arms testifying to the beauty of solidarity marching on its feet toward peace?

Shall we overcome?  Will we overcome? Can we overcome?

If we are to remain an open and free society, we MUST unite in love’s spirit with selfless regard for each other, and together, repair, patch and restore our torn social fabric.

Bound by faith, we are bound by a common dream! Our dream is  our hope, and our “hope is the expectation of victory.”

Today we dream of liberation. Tomorrow we will awaken freedom! Tomorrow we will stand in the light of justice, see truth manifest and feel the unfathomable joy of of being free!
