Inside the Gretna, Nebraska Glass Church
One of a series of shots I took of the inside of that Nebraska Glass Church I posted last week. The visual lines were amazing, the acoustics were surprisingly clear. It was quiet a distance from Omaha and from anything else, really, but worth the drive to find it.
This made me think of “the beauty inside” of all of us. With the Boston Bombing attacking such a peaceful and humane event that brings people together, this is an apropos time to ask, what beauty is inside you? Are you loving and open or closed and spiteful? Do you greet people with a handshake and a hug or clenched teeth and fists? Metaphorically or realistically?
We’re hearing so much about the first responders and standers-by rushing towards the bombing area, where multitudes lay, broken and bleeding, in the aftermath. What a beautiful image of those looking to help others in need. Their humanity was not shaken or torn by those improvised bombs. These people rushed in to help others in need. Some, of course, were paid to rush and help, Police Officers, Sheriff’s deputies, EMT’s but others were just standing by, spouses and those cheering runners.
Our hats off to you!
So greet others with wide open arms, a hug and a handshake. You never know what evil lurks out, so let your inner beauty shine, much like the interior of the Nebraska Glass Church.
