Tribute to Mt. Carmel
by Zen Gardner
(B4IN) I had the privilege to visit Mt. Carmel this summer. It was difficult to find, only obscure websites gave hints to its location on the outskirts of Waco. We finally found it--no fanfare, no highway markers, no local signs at all. Not surprising--it's a shame on humanity what transpired here.
When we finally found it, this is what we saw. Very different from the TV shots of some massive location. This little chapel, now in the former church's stead, is only a few hundred feet from the gate. It stands humble, solitary and serene on top of the bulldozed remains of the once horrific scene.
We drove in the gate to find this setback from the road, with a simple headstone and memorial to those who died just behind it.
But the most striking thing was the peaceful silence there, as if to say, "everything's fine, don't worry about us. We're in a much better place now, and this time and all the world's going through will soon pass...." It was palpable and quite moving. It seemed to just lovingly dismiss any fears or overblown ideas of the powers of the apparent 'controllers' of today. It was almost amusing, and very forgiving and comforting.
Song to Mt. Carmel - by Zen
(haunting old English tune...)
You've never seen silence so loud
These valiant young martyrs were proud
To die for their faith
And their Lord embrace
As they rose from the fiery cloud
They died for their faith, their children embraced
We watched as these souls burned alive
And though they did suffer, the legacy's tougher
For all who consent to this crime
The markers are humble and kind
They honor those lost on both sides
The sweetness is real
A tangible feel
The testament they left resides
There's no anger or hate at Carmel
Just a peace and release you can tell
While it's hard to find
It will calm your mind
With serenity... hear Freedom's Knell
