half truths, and superficial relationships,
so that our lives have depth and vision.
May we be blessed with anger at injustice
and exploitation of people,
so that we work for justice and peace.
May we be blessed with tears to shed for those who suffer,
so that we reach out to comfort them,
May we be blessed with enough foolishness
to believe that we can make a difference in this world,
and do what others claim cannot be done.
