Reflection

Ensconced in my favorite chair I watch the evening news. Homelessness, state executions, poverty, war, hunger. A world void of peace invades my snug home. Outside snow falls and creates a scene of tranquility. I sip Earl Grey from a china cup and wonder if justice is more than  a concept. I set my teacup in the kitchen sink and see my reflection in the windowpane. Ashamed, I turn away and bow my head in prayer.
