…of iris, ‘Mr/Madam Speaker’, & love….

Iris in Vancouver’s Stanley Park!

…”Expect the Speaker to be taking sides in the BC political fray”…”Terror in Britain: Love is not enough”….

SOMETHING ABOUT….”the rules of the house are clear that in the event of a tie, the speaker “shall give a casting vote” to break the deadlock. A sure way to politicize the office by forcing the speaker to regularly take sides in the partisan fray.”

And so it will go soon!

SOMETHING ABOUT….“run, hide, tell, like ‘duck & cover’ was taught to a previous generation of school children. ‘Love will conquer hate’. But is love enough?….Is something more required? Obviously yes, but just what might that be? A dilemma.”

“Listen to our cries for mercy, come to our relief,

My spirit grows faint within me, my heart within me is dismayed,

My spirit fails,

Preserve our lives, bring us out of trouble,

Lead us on level ground.”  a wee paraphrase prayer for our world

May it be so!
