Happy Memorial Day!


 In memory of all those in uniform who gave their lives for our freedom.

Let there be peace, welfare and righteousness
in every part of the world.
 
Let confidence and friendship prevail
for the good of east and west
for the good of the needy south
for the good of all humanity.
 
Let the people inspire their leaders
helping them to seek peace by peaceful means
helping them and urging them
to build a better world
a world with a home for everybody
a world with food and work for everybody
a world with spiritual freedom
for everybody.
 
Let those who have the power of money
be motivated by selfless compassion.
Let money become a tool
for the good of humankind.
 
Let those who have power
deal respectfully with the resources of the planet.
Let them respect and maintain
the purity of the air, water, land and subsoil.
Let them co-operate to restore
the ecological soundness of Mother Earth.
 
Let trees grow up by the billions
around the world.
Let green life invade the deserts.
 
Let industry serve humanity
and produce waste that serves nature.
 
Let technology respect
the holiness of Mother Earth.
 
Let those who control the mass media
contribute to create mutual understanding
contribute to create optimism and confidence.
 
Let ordinary people
meet by the millions across the borders.
Let them create a universal network
of love and friendship.
 
Let billions of human beings
co-operate to create a good future
for their children and grandchildren.
 
Let us survive
In peace and harmony with Mother Earth.  ~ Hagen Hasselbalch


If we can all get along, then humans should be able to too! We are cats for peace! Happy Memorial Day ya'll!
