I Must Stop
As citizens, we need to pray for those who lead our own country, that they may seek wisdom and be willing to do the hard things when necessary. We need to pray for those who gather intelligence to try to prevent these attacks and for those who fight physically with the enemy who seeks to destroy not just the United States, but any country that values liberty.
So let us pause today and think of those who have lost so much in these last few hours, and those whom hate kills every day throughout the world in less dramatic ways. Let us fight hate by showing love in our families and neighborhoods to those who do not feel valued. Let our words be gracious and uplifting to those who hurt, including those we live with.
Peace begins at home. It spreads from there. May God help us live in peace with each other.
