Abandoned

It seems to me that we discard those most precious things of our culture and history. So many beautiful churches are being demolished, abandoned, violated. We leave such beauty to be ravished by nature or the hands of man. We don’t seem to treasure much in America. I always puzzle at that lack of regard for our own history and those monuments to faith and art. I never find redeeming answers. I’m only left with sadness.
