Wisdom from ancient Sanskrit reminds us that necessity changes a course but never a goal. Necessity has surely visited our nation. These past years while helplessly watching our national goals being reshaped in the images of our national enemies has caused me great agitation. It is surely a time that drives me to my knees in prayer. It is unsettling to see the deep-rooted hatred manifesting itself in our national policies – the most egregious being realized by our nation’s violation of its own human rights values. War powers acts of our national executive body seem to be the catch all phrase that allows the law of humanity to be set aside in favor of human brutality.
