Interfaith Prayer Vigil

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.

    I thoroughly enjoyed last night’s prayer vigil in Connecticut. I found it peaceful and reassuring. You might find some of it shown in UTube since the President spoke.

    There is so much dividing our country anymore it seems. When we look on this tragedy and see everyone working together to heal this terrible wound, we cannot help but see a better future for America and her people. I watched and wept with everyone else. I am so proud of the people of Newtown and their unity. I am proud of their elected officials and our president for leading and serving the needs of the people at this time. We need to follow this example to go forward as a nation united.
