THE BRIDGE

The prose-poem below is not exactly a "news item" in the conventional sense. It does, though, tell of several news items over several decades. I trust readers enjoy reading of these news-items, past and present. I trust, too, that moderators here at Baha'i Library Online have a flexible po...
