Today I will remember.
I will think of those that lost their lives when people chose violence over peace.
I will pray for strength for those who lost their loved ones;
Those, who today and everyday, live with this loss.
I will think of the men and women who have left their families behind to protect our country and to provide aid to those in need.
I will pray for peace throughout the world.
My God bless us, one and all.1
