On This National Day of Prayer…

I remember the forgotten,
The murdered, the abused, the innocent- both human and animal alike.
I plead for justice, for mercy, for hope to win this endless fight.
I seek understanding for my part in bringing healing to a broken land.
I request peace in my heart that I may extend it to my fellow man.
I desire to absorb the calm that only time in nature can bring.
I ask that my being will dance with the flowers as they dance in the wind,
Sing with the birds as they coast on the breeze,
Grasp the sun like the cheerful leaves.
I pray, I remember, I reflect, and I rejoice.

Aloha! Thank you for visiting the Weeklythoughtexhange. I hope you enjoy this healthy exchange of ideas and thoughts. I am a middle school language arts teacher and relish active discussion, frequent reading, writing for leisure and growth, and immersion in new ideas and thoughts. Some of my favorite pastimes include being outdoors with family, friends and pets, traveling the world and country, and embarking on new adventures wherever they happen to find me - in my own backyard or on the other side of the Pacific Ocean.
