O bless this people, Lord, who seek their own face
Under the mask and can hardly recognize it
O bless this people that breaks its bond
And with them, all the peoples of Europe,
All the peoples of Asia,
All the peoples of Africa,
All the peoples of America,
Who sweat blood and sufferings.
And see, in the midst of these millions of waves
The sea swell of the heads of my people.
And grant to their warm hands that they may clasp
The earth in a girdle of brotherly hands,
Beneath the rainbow of thy peace.
~Leopold Sedar Senghor
And my prayer today is
Peace in the World.
We can only pray and do our part.
