2020 Day 5: “You are praying for my son, aren’t you?”

On the last day of the year 2019 I was eating in Whole Foods and struck up a conversation with a woman. We didn’t discuss politics, but we did discuss patriotism. During our conversation she shared that her son was being deployed to Baghdad soon. She saw the look in my eyes as I took a moment of silence and asked

“You are praying for my son, aren’t you?”

“Yes”, I said, with tears slowly streaming down my face.

I didn’t understand then why I felt so much emotion. With the drone strike of two days ago, I am beginning to understand the significance of her question and my tears.

So tonight I pray for those in command of the armies around the world to resonate with world peace and to make decisions consistent with pushing away the approaching universes filled with war.
