May the Great Spirit guide and keep you

|"What kind of peace do we seek? Not a 'Pax Americana' enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of a slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children—not merely peace for Americans, but peace for all men and women; not merely peace in our time, but peace for all time." |
"...We are not here distributing blame or pointing the finger of judgment. We must deal with the world as it is, and not as it might have been had ...history ...been different."
Commencement Address at American University June 10, 1963
"Strategy of Peace"
President John F. Kennedy (1917 - 1963)
Let our hearts and prayers and actions "remember" and "be guided by" compassionate wisdom, and not allow fear and hate to blind us ...as these last two are the very forces which are ever being encouraged and promoted by these hostile acts, and they are the very things which work at the heart of undermining peace and freedom in our world, and in our hearts.
Great Spirit, guide and protect the men and women who go to engage in battle. Lend them courage and strength. Comfort their families and loved ones. And guide and protect our leaders and their good judgement.
