It's a bitter sweet symphony

It is a beautiful Spring day. The temperature is high enough to make you thaw out from a chilly, wet winter. But it isn’t so hot that you think the sun is in route to impacting the Earth. There is a perfect breeze and enough pollen in the air to make you almost sneeze, but not have a full on asthma attack. I love pollen, even though it takes its toll on me, because it means life is about to burst out of brown dull plants.

Bluefield College is hosting a Holocaust Symposium all the month of April. The month of life. There are speakers almost daily, the theatre department preformed The Diary of Anne Frank, the music department is doing a Holocaust Cantata and there are photographs of horror and sadness lining our halls. It is really hard to swallow all the events that are being hosted through out the campus. It takes me back to my trip to Poland when I visited Auschwitz and Birkenau. I just don’t understand humanity then and I don’t understand humanity now.
