As my pattern-seeking brain matured into adolescence, it could no longer be contained.
And it began to see the numerous holes in the stories THE GATEKEEPERS told.
It could not help but see the MINDLESSNESS of their SLOGANS…
the FRIVOLITY of their PASTIMES…
the EMPTINESS of their PROMISES.
But most disturbing and disheartening of all… was the HYPOCRISY of their RELIGIONS and POLITICS.
A uniquely burdened and blessed citizen of the world thinking and acting out loud!
