Memorial Day Prayer 2008

May all who cherish the memory and life of someone gone be blessed with memories more joyous than sad. May all who have lost heart, limbs or lives fighting other men's wars be healed. May their families be comforted. May all who have killed be forgiven. May all our hearts be filled with an insatiable lust for peace at home, abroad and on any battlefield anywhere. Be we ruler or serf, may our craving for peace be so deep we pursue it relentlessly, eschewing violence, responding only with compassion, until peace on Earth is no longer a promise or a dream, but true and lasting.
