Mysterious Letter

GOD—ONLY YOU CAN BRING PEACE ON EARTH

SALUTE TO OUR MILITARY PARADE, Fairbanks, Alaska

This is the letter I would write to God for Peace on Earth:

REMEMBERING 9-11 MEMORIAL SALUTE

Here we sit in the sacred shadows

Of that September 11 aftermath fray;

Our Memorial Salute to the Heroes

Of that horrific historic day.

Our prayers go out for the families

And young offspring on the grow;

Only His touch can heal broken hearts

And sustain them as they go.

Here we sit in the sanctuary shadows

Our Memorial ascending up today;

God–only you can bring Peace on Earth

–The real reason we pause to pray.
