A Prayer for Remembrance Day

                 For those who were killed in battle

                 For those who gave up their lives to save others

                  For those who fought because they were forced to

                  For those who died standing up for a just cause

                  For those who said war was wrong

                  For those who tried to make the peace

                  For those who prayed when others had no time to pray

                  For those creatures who needlessly die

                   For those trees that needlessly are  slaughtered

                                     For all of mankind


                                     Let us quietly pray.


                          May your God hold them in peace

          May Love flow over the earth and cleanse us all 

                                 This day and for always.
