Wise words for today...

Women at funeral of Rev. Pinckney, Charleston, S.C. (Screen shot from TV coverage, MSNBC)
"There is a sobbing of the strong,
     And a pall upon the land;
But the people in their weeping
     Bare the iron hand;
Beware the people weeping
     When they bare the iron hand."
.... Herman Melville upon the death of President Abraham Lincoln
