primary butterflies

an excerpt...

We pray for those -- like many of us-- who are more indirectly affected by
the terror of this week. as we feel more vulnerable than ever before, as we
are reminded how dependent we are on the good will of others, as we seethe
with anger, may we rightly call for justice, but not wrongly lash out for
revenge. May we rightly demand the satisfaction of truth, without wrongly
perpetuating speculations and falshoods. Give us the presence of mind and
the depth of spirit to belive that good overcomes evil, love overcomes hate,
and life overcomes death.

excerpted from a prayer by D. Mark Davis
