I love my country.
If you missed last night’s televised interfaith prayer vigil in Newtown, Connecticut, do what it takes to find a copy. The service, held in the high school auditorium, was about an hour and a half long. It was a model of right and good for you and me, the whole world, to see.
Newtown’s selectwoman, first responders, Connecticut’s governor, our president, the leaders from all the different faiths in Newtown—Bahai, Methodist, Catholic, Episcopal, Lutheran, Islamic, Jewish, Congregational … who spoke, prayed, sang, hugged, cried … Under an unimaginable burden, Newtown is showing us how to come together.
