Saddened 
     that some have ceased to care. 
There really 
     is no time for that. 
This time,
     this now,
demands the deepest of our
     care,
     concern,
     compassion.
Humanity is crying
     from abandonment;
creation is screaming
     from neglect;
children are dying
     from disengagement.
We must resist
     apathy,
     indifference,
     unconcern,
     insensitivity.
These are the enemies 
     of community,
     of freedom,
     of we.
This is the time
to devote ourselves fully
     to one another.
