This morning I awoke with a dream, to write an article entitled "Stop the Cycle of Violence". I needed to research, research the Taleban, Osama Bin Laden, al-Qaeda, the CIA, I needed information as to WHY, and HOW, and the more I learned, the more I cried. And the more I learned and cried, the more I began to feel helpless, without solution, and that was so very very hard for me to deal with.
This cycle of violence, this endless hatred for each other, it must stop.
Tonight at 7:30 pst I am going to light my candles for peace, and I share this prayer with all of my family, friends, loved ones and the world.
I wanted to share it with you now,
Prayer for Peace
Creator, you are the
Father and Mother of all people on the earth.
I pray all the nations and their leaders
in the ways of justice and peace.
Protect us from the evils of injustice,
prejudice, exploitation, conflict and war.
Help us to put away mistrust, bitterness and hatred.
Teach us to cease the storing and using of implements of war.
Lead us to find justice, peace and freedom.
Unite us in the making and creating of the tools of peace
against ignorance, poverty, disease and oppression.
Grant that we may grow in harmony and friendship
as brothers and sisters
I love you all
note: I got this from somewhere on the internet, have no idea who the author is, but I changed it a bit to suit what I felt and to avoid religious differences.
