The book of Ephesians gives us a simple instruction: be kind to one another.  How often we adults stress this principle in words to our young people.  And how often adult behavior gives them an opposite example.  In working to imitate Christ, we do not harm others in word or deed, but seek their welfare.  May it be so in our lives in a time of great cruelty. 

The nation: Holy Trinity, one God, you show us the splendor of diversity and the beauty of unity in your own divine life. Make us, who came from many nations with many languages, a united people that delights in our many different gifts. Defend our liberties, and give those whom we have entrusted with authority the spirit of wisdom, that there might be justice and peace in our land. We pray in the name of Jesus Christ, our sovereign and our Savior.  Amen
