May we take a few moments to reflect, remembering those who served our country well. Start your meditation with this prayer:
"You gave for peace with courage
That families may be free
So children could grow strong
And safe they'd ever be.
In giving for the sake of peace
You may have suffered loss
Your body may still show its wounds
From taking up the cause.
May remembrance of your time away
Your sacrifice for peace
Spur us on to strive more strongly
For freedom, that there'll be release.
From causes that sent some away
To fight that we may freely live
With gratefulness we thank you, veterans
For all you gave and give!"
Sit in meditation pose and go deeply within to your core of peace. Feel your breathing slow down and become regular and rhythmic. This is the experience to take from meditation into the world to promote peace. Be an example in your family and with all you have contact with during the day. Peace is practical. Peace is the practical means to create a harmonious world for everyone. Let peace begin with yourself in meditation, and radiate peace through your actions to the world.
