Destruction of Biblical Proportions

How we do some things
connects us all.
A response of historic numbers
to a focused mission.
Hands getting it done
in a grand job for Peace
A car bomb in Bab Touma
sets off a storm of Destruction in the Old City of Damascus.
Where Muslims, Christians and Jews
lived in quarters side by side behind walls three men high.
The warning rises on the Four Winds.
Driving a storm of epic proportions.
As the deluge of violence in Syria
spreads throughout the Middle East.
War planes thunder over Damascus
ensuring its destruction,
sadly the prediction delivers true.
A passionate echo from the ancient Prophet Isaiah his words
knitted on the back of a sweater in Aleppo:
