For Us As For the Children of Pompeii

Did not the Bible tell me so?  Did not Jesus Himself say it?  He said that there would be no time at all for us to gather our things, to pack our bags, when the "blood-red tide is loosed upon the world."

We will be like the children of Pompeii.  We will be like the wife of Lot, arrested in flight, our very eyes turned saltine, caught gazing back at the Twin Cities -- Sodom and Gomorrah, Chelsea and Everett, Methuen and Billerica, East and West Orange, Minneapolis and St. Paul,  Buda and Pest.  No one, I say, will be spared.
