Send Me

All this I saw, as I applied my mind to everything done under the sun. There is a time when a man lords it over others to his own hurt. Then too, I saw the wicked buried – those who used to come and go from the holy place and receive praise in the city where they did this. This too is meaningless. ~ Ecclesiastes 8.9-10 (NIV)

“When in the course of human events

it becomes necessary….”*

Tough times bring out the best—

and the worst—

in us.

But wait a minute. Go back to the first,

to “When.” To The Teacher’s “a time.”

Simple words?

No. Not simple, not here.

When’s it when? Who told the

scared patriots in Philadelphia heat?

“With a firm reliance on the protection of Divine

Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our

Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”


I’m scared now like they were then.

God, I feel like Isaiah. Woe is me.

But if you say so, here I am.

Send me.**
