We find ourselves wondering what is wrong with the world we live in. We see pain and struggle, injustices and death, disease, disaster and destruction. Our hearts cry out for the repair of our world, the reconstruction of our society, the everlasting presence of love, mercy, compassion and peace, the reestablishment of justice, the re-emergence of good and honorable women and men to lead the way. Remind us that such change requires our participation, our involvement, our partnership with persons of like mind and spirit. Give us strength, courage and the will to put our best efforts forward, to work tirelessly, to love extravagantly, and to hope eternally. This is our prayer. So may it ever be. Blessed be. Namaste. A salaam alaikum. Amen.
