Love Supreme

We read about it in the news. Sad parents given right to choose,
Decided gift of life should go to daughter of their ancient foe.

Not ours to say who’s right who’s wrong in war that has been waging long.
Violence will not end the fight, but oh, a love like this just might.

A foe this year could be a friend, if we could only learn to mend
Our differences with acts of love as taught by our own Lord above.

		(Written about the case of the Israelite parents whose daughter was felled by violence and they made the decision to give needed organ to Palestinian child.)
