Unreal friendship may turn to real
But real friendship, once ended, cannot be mended
On December 29, 1170, Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury, was murdered at Canterbury Cathedral by four knights who believed King Henry II wanted him dead. Written and first performed in 1935, Murder in the Cathedral is T.S. Eliot’s verse dramatization of the assassination. The play is Eliot’s best known drama. The poet went on to win the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1948.

Today in my daily meditation reading I came across this profound verse
Proverbs 19:1King James Version (KJV)
Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
Possibly someone should pass this along to the President elect to consider.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
