“Darkness and Light”

November 9th is historic for darkness……….two types.

The darkness of man…November 9, 1938

……..Kristallnacht, or Night of Broken Glass…….the beginning of one of the darkest shadows cast over mankind………

And for those of us old enough to remember….another type of darkness.

Nov 9, 1965…….the entire Northeast blacked out. people stuck in elevators,  the entire Gotham City plunged in darkness, due to a power failure.   Back then, we sat by AM transistor radios, worrying what enemy had plotted this attack.

But November 9th also brought light……….Nov 9, 1989…….East Germany opens the Berlin Wall.  We all watched the following day as people hammered at its darkness and chipped away at the rubble for souvenirs.

Glass…….the beauty of a prism, the darkness of a broken shard.

Stone……the sanctity of a cathedral, the darkness of a bordered wall.

Blackouts……..they bring darkness and, as documented, a burst of new life nine months later.

The Darkness and the Light………

Peace on this November 9th, may it be filled with light,
