the arc of justice is long

Maricopa County’s ‘Tent City’ jail to close

And it only took a quarter of a century.

“The arc of justice is long, but it bends toward the moral universe.”

Sorry, Theodore, I know Abe and Martin made more inspiring use of your words. Indeed, it is clear I am searching for hopefulness with this news, reaching only cynicism.

Turning to prayer to visualize the world, and the hope, I want to be made manifest:

May the prisoners, their loved-ones, and those caring for all of them be safe from inner and outer dangers, may they be well in body and mind, may they be filled with loving-kindness, may they be at ease and may they be happy.

May our compasses upon discerning true north, align immediately and without delay. Amen.
