May, 2013. Bleakness.

Dear Lord,

Forgive us for the mess we have made of the world we have inherited.

We inherited war upon war until WW II...then added Korea, Vietnam,
The Cold War, Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria.    
Forgive us, Lord.

We inherited the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Yellowstone, the Alps, and 
Everest....then we polluted the air and water with our greed for oil 
And electric "power."     
 Forgive us, Lord.

We inherited a religion of one God, a religion of the earth.  We added 
Rabbnical Judaism,  Christianity, Islam, Bahai, Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Jainism
and a thousand other faiths--plus the idolatry of  Materialism.  
Forgive us, Lord.

Now we see our military launching high tech drones to kill our own
citizens--in the name of "security."   Now we see our own offspring
gunning  down children in theaters and schoolrooms. And now we see 
people hacking each other to death on  city streets--in the  name of religion.
Forgive us, Lord.

We have evolved to become a lean and mean killing machine,
the destroyer of Worlds, wielder of violence and self-destruction. 
None of this violence is ever "glorious."
Can you...Forgive us, Lord?
