The Twinning of the Ponds ~ October 2, 2014

The Twinning of the Ponds
October 2, 2014
Moons past and across the seas
FAITH anew marks heartfelt decrees
A community joined in celebration
Hallowed be the dedication
To life held in Creation's embrace
Memories within heart ever to place
Reverent BE our deep knowing wise
Never never shall be lived such demise
Each life its own special abiding quest
We the guardians of life's behest
And with love and a giving hand
Be the glory of God's command
Sacred words be they read, be they heard
Resounding FAITH echoes echoes as heart's word
our Fearlessness
our Aspiration
the I AM Presence
the Truth
the Heart ...
the Birth
the Eternal ... this granted onto ALL.

Camp Venture Memorial “Pond of the 200,000” behind the LIU/Venture Center building on Route 340 in Sparkill, New York. It’s a memorial to the 200,000 handicapped people Hitler had killed as “Useless Eaters” unworthy of life, and to “Twin” it with the Memorial Ash Pond of Auschwitz, today in dedication.
