Walt Whitman at 200


Whitman was born 200 years ago this month (May 31, 1819).

Today’s column in the Citizen-Times (page one; page two) presented his resounding voice as it needs to be heard, calling for a new kind of “faith,” one that assumes our common Humanity and perhaps divinity … an inter-relationship with all things. Whitman invites us to sing his poetic songs, and ours, not as soloists but as part of the Great Chorus of Life.
