A blessing...

May God bless us with discomfort at easy answers, half truths and superficial relationships so that we may live deep within our hearts.

May God bless us with anger at injustice and exploitation of people so that we may work for justice, freedom and peace.

May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer pain rejection, hunger and war so that we may reach out our hand to comfort them and turn their pain to joy.

And may God bless us with enough foolishness to believe that we can make a difference in the world so we can do what others claim cannot be done to bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor.
