Dream Harder, Sleep Sounder
Do you dream harder when you sleep sounder? It's a thought I pondered as I tried to contemplate life in the middle of the night. Nightmares awaken me out of a deep sleep and I stir trying to figure out what has happened. Light sleeping only puts our mind at rest for a short time. Sometimes we shut our eyes to the world hoping everything is a nightmare. The Boston marathon explosions, the Newtown tragedy, on and on. And some people say it's only today we must shut our eyes. Violence stems back even to biblical times. It is not only with our eyes open that we see it. They fight back in every way possible wanting to stop sells. How do you stop the selling to evil? How can you ever gauge the intent of the heart? If it isn't one tool, it is another. My gun, your sword, your fist, my knife. Every century has a weapon. What awakens the soul to bigger and better things?
