Dreams, Hope, Prayers and Faith


All of my life I have dreamed that the world would unite and celebrate one another for the beauty within.  Today I celebrate and place my hopes in the hands of a new American President who speaks of my dreams.  

I pray for our nation and our world these things:

Acceptance of one's religion, no matter what faith or god or prophet. 
Compassion for those in need.
A celebration of the differences that make each of us so unique.
A universal race: humankind. 

I have faith we can achieve a better world if we open our hearts and love one another.

(By the way, all those links to my blog were not put there by me. I only say this because I had a nasty e mail accusing of doing that very thing on another blog. I think they are there because I have links to you in my sidebar)
