What is there to do when people die — people so dear and rare — but bring them back by remembering.
On this Memorial Day let us pray for peace.
The Peace Prayer of Saint Frances
Lord make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy
O divine Master, grant I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
I do wish you all a safe and happy Memorial Day. What ever you may be doing today, take a moment to remember those that have served our country even unto death.
Remember too, all those we loved and lost and say a prayer for peace. Peace begins with each and every one of us.
