26. Towers that rise to God's level

How many of those were truly reverent monuments to God, as opposed to monuments to the ego and greed of men who wield vast wealth and power?

Edifices like the great cathedrals of Europe and the Taj Mahal are awesome human achievements, renowned for their beauty and craft. Perhaps our civilization would be poorer without these priceless monuments, but were they not built on the backs of the poor in societies even more unequal than today?

Now we have a different kind of edifice built on lies, hate, and worship of a man whose image was fashioned into a modern day Golden Calf -- a false idol if ever there was. Should human civilization survive and evolve, history will look less kindly on this than the monuments of Pope and Sultan.

Human beings working together can build wondrous things but we still fail at crafting the best possible monument to God, if such a deity exists. The truest expression of Love and Devotion is to build a Foundation and a Legacy of Truth and Justice for our children and future generations, growing our human potential for Life on the beautiful planet we inhabit.
