sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

A memory

I remember my shock and sadness when I found out that the Popemobile has bulletproof glass. And I remember the shock and awe of people the world over when John Paul II left those safe confines to wave to the people without the protection of the bullet proof glass. Of course, I found out about the first thing while watching the second. I just remember thinking how sad it was that a religious leader would need such a thing. I mean, who would want to kill the Pope?

I was younger then, and a great deal more naive. Now I realize that there are many wackos out there, and even normal people sometimes need to hide behind bulletproof fiberglass.
