ecovering the loss from a failure to seek both halves of our whole is not solved by increasing connecting apps, but by a reverence for our connected roots. For like trees to sun and soil, we ourselves are the conduit for both life and death, having, with each new dawn, the potential of being a love canal for affordable healthcare, environmental respect and harmonious peace.

What America may become after the victory of revolution, the pain of discrimination, the fear of change and the apathy toward whipping posts, spousal abuse and Guantanamo torture, will be found in the countenance of our choices: racial equality or perpetual war, a justice for all future or recurring trails of tears, reaping the Ferguson whirlwinds of slave ships or Thank God Almighty, We're Free at Last.

The discrimination of foreign and domestic extremists whose interpretative distortion of legal documents and iconic holy books is not in God, but in our hypocrisy.

The failure of European and American politicians to grasp significance of sectarian religious anger is not in our stars, but in our lack of historical wisdom.

The persecution, enslavement or torture of any people whether African-American, Native American, Kurdish or Yazidi, is not in our constitution but in our failure to the Constitution.

The deficiency of our empathetic connectivity, is not in our devices, but in our need for instant consumer gratification.

And the harbor of our lack of humanity is not Middle Eastern mountain tops, but in the hidden valleys of our short term memories.

Whether calculating from Eden, Abraham or The Little BigHorn, even prehistoric Lucy stands in the shadow of half and half ancestor: three million year old Ape Man.
