“The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs, and explosions, and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices, to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy; and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children, and the children yet unborn.” – Rod Serling, writer of the science fiction TV series The Twilight Zone (25 Dec 1924-1975)
The next series of poems on The Twilight Zone, Season 2 this time, will begin in January until the completion of a poem for each episode of that season. 🙂
It’s a promise to my eldest little girl. A promise is a promise. A promise made is one intended to be kept and should never be made without being kept. The only exceptions being death or some other event that makes the keeping of a promise impossible. This I have taught my girls in words. But, it’s best kept by example. So, it shall be if I can keep any promise made to my little girls, they will always be kept absent my death.
