We greet this Fourth of July with grateful hearts as we call to mind the vision of freedom and justice for all upon which our country was built.
We give thanks for those who imagined this vision.
We are grateful to those who continue advocating for and pursuing a land of peace, liberty and equality for all. We realize it is still being created, however, as we witness the divisions, prejudices and injustices that plague us.
May we hold fast to the dream and vision of unity within our country.
May we dedicate ourselves to living as brothers and sisters, ever respectful of one another’s dignity and need for equity.
May we also realize the importance of reverencing our earth which provides for and sustains much of our lives.
We give glory and praise to our God and pray that we may always live in harmony as one family.
