In the United States, we reflected today upon the tragedy that occurred September 11, 2001. We remembered and honored those who died, and those who gave their lives trying to save others. It's unfortunate that some would plan to purposely take the lives of others - for whatever reason - but most ironically in the name of God - the one who commanded "Thou shalt not kill."
If my wishes could be granted, and could change the world, I would wish that...
selfless service would conquer selfishness.
the needs of the poor, the needy, the homeless, the widowed and orphaned would be lovingly and tenderly fulfilled.
the nurture of families would take priority.
the sanctity of marriage, and the promise of fidelity and trust would be held sacred.
kindness and understanding would cross all boundaries of culture and religious beliefs - that humanity would be humane.
those who suffer from illness or disease would be made well.
all would have access to education, jobs, and be able to help make the world a better place to live.
peace would come to the world - this most of all - I wish peace to the entire world.
My heart goes out to those who have lost dear ones, no matter which side they were on.
It will when Christ comes again. Wish we humans could do it ourselves, eh?
Amen to that!
I agree, particularly to the sacredness of love, regardless of religion, ethnicity, or gender. Love is what would make all those things happen, and no matter if you are White, Black, Red, Yellow, Male, Female, Transgendered, Heterosexual, Bisexual, Homosexual, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Pagan, Shinto, or any other faith, you have every right to have and hold love and peace. No one has the right to tell you that you can not love another, no one has the right to say you can not be with your soul mate, no one has the right to take your life from you. With love, all good things are possible.
I agree wholeheartedly.
