Thought to Ponder!

Our prayers go out for all victims of hate, prejudice, untruths, lies, discrimination, bigotry, violence (natural, man-made or of any other form), greed, exploitation, injustices, oppression, that we know of or are not aware of, either big or small!

We also pray to make us mentally strong so that we never resort to such means for our ends and goals!
