...that the brave people who sign up for the job come home whole, instead of in flag draped coffins.
...that we always remember how history can repeat itself.
...that Jesus said to love our enemies.
...that we as a species can learn to solve our differences without killing each other.
We're human. My prayers might be impossible. I have no enemies to love and those I once had, I only ever got as far as feeling pity for them instead of hate.
But I keep praying.
