Stations of the Cross
Every day, somewhere in our city or our world...
A prisoner is condemned - rightly or wrongly.
A foreigner is targeted because someone thinks they don’t belong.
A parent grieves for a child’s suffering.
A soldier follows orders, like it or not.
A stranger reaches out with a simple act of kindness.
An activist is killed for speaking truth to power.
