April is National Poetry Month. One of my favorite poems isn’t really a poem at all but a powerful slice of prose from Donne’s Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions. It’s very much worth reading the whole thing. I present this part, because it informs my thinking about the duty we share with the global community.
This short piece of the Devotions is so often quoted for its confident rhythm and noble message: We are connected, and the loss of any of us is a loss to all of us.
