What a mistake it was, before my bed time, to read the finishing line in The New Yorker article titled Captivity:
They are perhaps thinking only that night is falling again, and that the men will come to each of them again, an unending horror.
Fellas, here’s my short good night prayer to you:
May you find it in your heart to let them go.
All of them.
NOW. Safely. Untouched.
And if you have no Heart and remain in Darkness,
I hope you watched the News today.
And saw that your government has accepted U.S. assistance.
You may be hearing Footsteps.
You may be hearing Thunder.
You will see Lightening. You will feel Rain. The skies will Open.
Sleep well Boys.
It’s coming. Hell is coming.
