Choosing light

Black hole at the core of Messier 87 from Wikipedia

Terrorists terrorize.
They destroy and divide.
They provoke reaction and compel reactionaries.
They valorize violence.
They corrupt compassion.
They mangle meaning.
They obliterate order and sunder sanity.
They choose chaos.
They prevent peace.

We must choose differently.
Or join them in that void from which no light escapes.
