Today is a day of prayer, for all others as well as our universe as we know it, not just for our country, but for all countries and for peace among all men. Today the thoughts, prayers and voices of many are raised to heaven and our Father, trusting that we can make a difference.
We must remember to pray also to our Lady as she is the queen of peace. She speaks to many, expecially the children and emplores us to pray for peace in the world, that our thoughts, words, and prayers indeed are life changing.
If we each alter the way we act toward others into an attitude of love, what a different world this would be. Instead of prejuidice let us give acceptance. Instead of far let us live in faith. Let us see the child of God in everyone, no matter their religion, nationality, race, place of birth, mode of dress, their education or lack there of.
Let us open up our hearts and learn to share for it is in giving we receive. Tolerance leads to love. Bigotry only breeds hate. Sice we are all the same in the eyes of God, so too should we be in the eyes of each other. And not just in how we see, but how we feel.
Let your heart feel the love that the Father feels for each one of us. See the brotherhood in all men, not just in the good and kind, that is easy, but in those that can be difficult and withdrawn, or meanspirited and tightfisted.
They need our love an understanding as well in order to change and see the light. Reach out your hands to your brothers and sisters and life up your voices to God, not just today, but everyday.
Make a commitment to world change and start with yourself. Do not say I will change when the world changes, begin now. One step at a time, one day at a time, is how change begins. We must start somewhere and let the momentum grow. Let there be peace on earth and leit it begin with me.
