all men and women are to each other the limbs of a single body. each of us drawn from life's shimmering essence. God's perfect pearl; and when this life we share wounds one of us, all share the hurt, as if it were our own. you, woh will not feel another's pain. you forfeit the right to be called human.

Robert,

This is a beautiful thought. I can tell you I read it many times before typing this reply.

Some people think that being human is a "right," while others believe it is an "obligation." In either case, to be human is to be born in creation from our higher power. Those with a body and a soul are no doubt human.

So this is my take (they say like some things everyone has an opinion). Consider perhaps we forfeit the right to be "holy," or "sanctified." or "justified," or "righteous," or "divine'" or even "Christian, Muslim, or Unitarian." All these things can be denied or refused while we remain fully human.

Nevertheless....good work!

I remain,
John Pfister
