Observe good faith and justice toward all nations.  Cultivate peace and harmony with all.

George Washington
Dear God, we pray to You
For people in all the world,
For other nations,
For other races,
For people who think differently
And live differently.
Help us to respect, understand,
And love each other.
Let there be no hate among nations.
Forgive all injustice.
Let wars end.
Let Your message be
Proclaimed everywhere.
Give us peace.

Amen

Coping with the 9.11.01 Aftermath
Waleed J. Iskandar
please visit
a memorial by a father to a son who was a victim of
9/11
This young man was only a couple of years older than my Ben.  I know there were many lost and my heart goes out to their families and I prayed many hours for them.  Waleed's dad visited here and my heart just ached for him. The grief of losing a child is not describable.




Rest Safely in His Care

There are many things in life
That we cannot understand,
But we must trust God's judgment
And be guided by His hand,
And all who have God's blessing
Can rest safely in His care,
For He promises safe passage
On the wings of faith and prayer.

PRAYER FOR PEACE

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;
and where there is sadness, joy. 
O Divine Master, grant that 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 in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to
eternal life.

The poem below was sent to me 08/21/02 along with this message:

Hello I am from scotland but live in canada now, I wrote this last year 3 days after the terrible attack on your home. Please use it if you like , I wrote it from my heart. Eileen Fraser,  London Ont.
God Bless.

(I think you'll agree, this is a beautiful person)


A View from a civilized person.


It was hard to look out and pretend not to hear

It was hard not to feel anger and fear,


We are taught the skill of being polite

we have learned no-one wins if there is a fight


I worked , I shopped , I took this cab ride

listening and nodding till I got out and cried


His words had confused me, I just had to sit

"Come on America why dont you, just get over it"


How could he say this has he no heart ?

Inside I dare to think, yes our lives are far apart.


Our countries have welcomed life from everywhere

traditions and religions we are taught to always care


Respect these differences and do everthing you can

open up our hearts and assist our fellow man.


We teach your children, and open our minds

we discourage racisim, of any kind


A family residence is offered ,food, advice and more

a kind word , a genuine smile, are given by the score


Now I'm scared and wonder how could this be

Realizing sadly you dont want to live to live like me.


The remark was said firmly you wanted me to hear

You disrespect my values and all that I hold dear.


I am a civilized person and forever I shall be

Our country is my family and that belongs to me.


So now I say to you " we cant get over it"

My family has been violated that we wont forget.


Eileen.



A MOMENT OF SILENCE


I PUT A HAND UPON MY CHEST

INSIDE MY HEART I SAY

AMERICA I THINK OF YOU

AND HOPE FOR YOU TODAY


FOR ALL THE FRIENDS YOU LOST

THE BEAUTY GONE DESTROYED

MAY ONE DAY YOU FIND A WAY

TO HEAL THAT UNFAIR VOID


TODAY WE STAND UNITED

AND SEND WISHES OUT FOR ALL

MAY PEACE BE WITH THE SILENT

MAY "AMERICA" STAND TALL
