Reflection/Poem: Thankful for the Law

For those of us who live in settled lands,
have homes and families and reasonable stability,
make money for our basic needs although it never seems enough,
embrace democracy whilst grumbling against the government
and are thankful that we do not encounter
the poverty, injustice and evil that so many others face,
it can be difficult to imagine a scene
where we would gather together as a nation
to be thankful for the law.

Yet talk today to refugees
fleeing from injustice or genocide...
